Sam Crockatt: Mells Bells

Read "Mells Bells" reviewed by Roger Farbey

"Canon" opens with precisely that musical device, piano and tenor sax chasing each other around until, changing tempo, the tune cleverly morphs into a moderately-paced melodically memorable number. Pianist Kit Downes offers some truly swinging piano followed by Sam Crockatt on articulate tenor saxophone, perhaps redolent in tone of the late Booker Ervin. Both funky and ...

Aquarium: Places

Read "Places" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Aquarium is a young British quartet with a melodic and accessible approach to jazz. Places follows the band's acclaimed self-titled debut (Babel Label, 2011) and features the same lineup of exciting new generation musicians.

Kaz Simmons: Dandelions

Read "Dandelions" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

Combining a voice of crystalline purity, a neat lyrical touch, some superb backing musicians and a few lushly romantic arrangements, Kaz Simmons' Dandelions has a gorgeous heart and a few twists and turns that surprise, delight and occasionally mystify by turn. This is Simmons' third album: the second on her own Fast Awake ...
