4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent modern jazz trio, 3 Oct. 2011
By 
This review is from: Quiet Tiger (Audio CD)
For some ,Jazz is a thing of the past, a quaint museum piece appreciated mostly by men in corduroy jackets and goatee beards to ponder over while drinking their real ale.For others it is a mutant creature that has moved on from its swinging verities to something that its forefathers and sisters would barely recognize. For me, Jazz is a work in progress. It is a music as Kit Downes and band prove on this CD that has broad enough roots to support just about any artistic expression and be successful on its own terms.

'Quiet Tiger' sounds very spontaneous yet very composed.In places this could almost be an ECM album-ethereal and pellucid , in others it sounds very robust, even muscular with the odd flirtation with atonalism. In no sense is 'Quiet Tiger' difficult, though it is certainly challenging -or should that be stimulating? Anyone enjoying Jazz in the Miles Davis 'ESP' / 'Seven Steps To Heaven' vien or the musings of Bill Evans,Keith Jarret or Chick Corea will want to give this album close inspection. Excellent stuff.

ps: Well recorded - notes could have been a little more expansive!
