Paul Mottram: Seven Ages Of Man

Read "Seven Ages Of Man" reviewed by Neil Duggan


Throughout history, many have tried to divide the human life cycle into defined stages. The most famous is William Shakespeare's reference to the seven ages in Jaques' speech in As You Like It, the one which starts “All the world's a stage." This was the initial spark which gave composer Paul Mottram the idea for Seven Ages Of Man, Shakespeare's seven ages being Infant, Schoolboy, Lover, Soldier, Judge, Pantaloon and Old Age. Mottram has added two introductory movements, Origins and ...

Tom Green Septet: Tipping Point

Read "Tipping Point" reviewed by Chris May


The second album from British trombonist, composer and arranger Tom Green's Septet follows the little-big-band's locally acclaimed Skyline (Spark), released back in 2015. Rather remarkably, the only change to the lineup since then is the replacement of alto and soprano saxophonist Matthew Herd by Tommy Andrews. Green's specialism appears to be big bands. His other core project is the Patchwork Jazz Orchestra, a co-operative 17-piece in which some of the Septet's members play. Patchwork's debut, The Adventures Of ...

Patchwork Jazz Orchestra: The Adventures of Mr Pottercakes

Read "The Adventures of Mr Pottercakes" reviewed by Roger Farbey


Maybe the quickest way to sum-up Patchwork Jazz Orchestra's The Adventures Of Mr Pottercakes would be to appropriate the title of The Who's 1971 compilation album, Meaty Beaty Big And Bouncy. For that is exactly what it is and quite a bit more besides. From the very start of the opening title track, there's a reminder of that other big band of young British jazz musicians, Loose Tubes. But since so many of today's leading British jazz musicians emerged from ...

As the son of the Italian classical conductor Claudio Abbado and Russian violinist Viktoria Mullova, music was inevitably in British bassist Misha Mullov-Abbado's blood. After graduating in music and composition from Gonville & Caius College, University of Cambridge he won a scholarship to study double bass at the Royal Academy of Music on its Masters jazz course tutored by virtuosos Jasper Høiby and Michael Janisch amongst others.

Misha Mullov-Abbado: New Ansonia

Read "New Ansonia" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay


Bassist and composer Misha Mullov-Abbado may be a new name on the UK scene but he's already won the 2014 Dankworth Prize for jazz composition and was a 2014 City Of Music Foundation Artist. The 2014 Kenny Wheeler Jazz Prize also came his way, with the release of debut recording New Ansonia forming part of that award. Mullov-Abbado may still be a relative youngster, but his upbringing ensured a wide exposure to music from an early age and ...
