It’s been a fantastic start to the year with a number of our artists and albums gaining press attention.
Tim Thornton was featured on Jamie Cullum’s Radio 2 Jazz programme when he played the radio edit of Dribbling from Tim’s latest release The Feel Good Place. “Intense, tricky, mathematical and very soulful. I love that” said Jamie.
Check out the programme here . The show also features a track by the piano trio GoGo Penguin – just signed to Blue Note – two members of which, Nick Blacka and Rob Turner play in one of the first bands on the label The Magic Hat Ensemble
Hannes Riepler‘s new album Wild Life is starting to get the attention of the press with very favourable reviews from All About Jazz and Marlbank to name a couple. Hannes has just played a few gigs in the UK culminating with a fantastic gig to a capacity crowd at Kings Place. The band features tenor player Chris Cheek from New York. Check out Chris’ website here
Finally the beautiful album Stardust from Stan Sulzmann and Nikki Iles has been warming the hearts of the critics. …“every track is a delicate and perfectly judged rendition of a standard” wrote Peter Jones on the London Jazz website. Watch out for some national press in the next few weeks!
