Press » F-IRE Works Vol 1
'Winstone's voice... also establishes a mood for F-IRE: Works which begins with Shorter Stories' live recording of At the Fair, a Wayne Shorter tune with lyrics by Winstone. But this 10-track compilation belongs to a new generation of British artists, including young bands such as Polar Bear, Jade Fox, Timeline and Acoustic Ladyland. And just as the DNA of Brit-jazz can be found in prog rock, punk, ambient music and electro, the F-IRE musicians' tentacles reach everywhere. Most of Jade Fox tour with rapper Ty, and Ingrid Laubrock works with Monica Vasconceles. Tom Arthurs' Centripede includes bassist Max de Wardener, who, like Timeline drummer Leo Taylor, plays with Mara Carlyle, signed (as is de Wardener) to Matthew Herbert's Accidental label. Cellist Ben Davis crops up in several bands: Laubrock's, Oriole, Shorter Stories and his own Basquiat Strings, including Gogmagogs viola player Nell Catchpole. Their track Double-Dares is a moody highlight of F-IRE: Works.'
