CD Reviews

Ear to the ground
Osscilator Bogarde | Ireland | 02/08/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Usually, jazz critics can provide a very concise, historical and literary review of an album. I can promise that mine won't, as I have not cultivated the sophistication that predominates among jazz listeners. I do know what I like though, and have always made an attempt to select music that is good, whatever the genre. 'There are only two types of music' according to Mozart, 'good music, and bad'.

What you have on this CD is good music. So modern that it is difficult to recognise the concepts, (when compared to styles such as bebop or even M-Base). But you can hear the authenticity of the players, who have favoured a very free style. O'Leary, the Irish guitarist, teams up with Polish trumpeter Stanko and American drummer Hart to provide music of a very high level. Which is to be expected when world reknowned band leaders team up. The title track is a serious piece of music. Enjoy.
