Highlights


“Infectious and bursting with ideas” – Album Of The Week, The Independent

“An intriguing, moody, sonic journey” **** Mojo

“An album that is as surprising as it is satisfying … evocative … allusive and moving” ***Jazzwise

“Intriguing balance of jazz spontaneity and composer’s narrative shape” ****Guardian

“Engagingly knotty yet melodic” – The Times

“Thematic cohesiveness and cinematic eloquence” Guardian (Our music team pick…)

“The-Quartet are perpetuating the Canterbury scene in fine style.” BBC Online

“Packed with dense, imaginative, absorbing and muscular music revealing fresh subtleties each time it’s played. Recommended.” Vortexjazz.co.uk

“Unstable shapes and structures and held together by singing melodic lines, and all the elements cohere … mind-stretching, but in an appealing and accessible way” ****The Manchester Evening News

“Bailey’s fondness for splicing busy clusters of notes into rhythmic spaces that seem too tight for them often drove the group to a cliffhanging intensity … the group’s spontaneous energy is as powerful a core quality as the writing” The Guardian

“This is a band that is going places.” Jazz UK
