Album Description

Cambridge-based jazz quartet Q3 released their third album, “Water Speckled Midnight,” in January 2024. This is a welcome follow up to the well-received release “The Monkey Puzzle Tree” in 2019. Featuring 10 new compositions by pianist Martin Hallmark, the album is an eclectic mix of jazz with latin, funk, arabic and mediterranean influences. The music is exquisitely crafted, quirky, melodic and highly listenable. There is a high quality line up which delivers some fine soloing. Kevin Flanagan on tenor sax remains at the top of his game and produces some masterful moments and a wonderful tone. Tiago Coimbra is one of the UK’s finest electric bassists, and his solos alternately touch on North African, flamenco and funk influences. Martin Hallmark’s piano solos are beautifully crafted interspersed with Corea-esque lines. Drummer Oscar Reynolds anchors the album with a delicate touch allowing the fluidity of the music to shine through.
