    REVIEWS

    November 2011, http://www.britishjazzblog.com
    “The album starts with a bluesy, Stevie Ray Vaughn-esque guitar lick which is backed elegantly by some ambient electronic effects. The guitar line grooves so naturally and easily that you find yourself craving that big swooping drum fill which will head inevitably into a solid four four beat.. and it doesn't disappoint. The drums's come crashing in without warning and you find yourself bathed in rhythmic ecstasy. Trumpet and guitar lines play melodic motifs in unison and if you get a real sense that this is going to a bloody fantastic record, you wouldn't be wrong! The whole album draws upon the obvious compositional and performance virtuosity on display from its musicians creating a diverse sound which ranges from the insanely groovy in tracks such as 'Jemima's Brew D' to the plain insane in tracks like 'Monkey Didjerrydo'. Its a fantastic old fashion record in terms of the journey that the pieces take you on and each track holds their own on an individual listen as well as a collective unit!”
