"Creative, imaginative, wild and copiously inventive...”

John Fordham, The Guardian

At first listen, their new release ‘Food For Thought’ sounds more like a rock album than a jazz one. It soon becomes clear that this is a true melting pot, with an eclectic list of influences from around the world. The result is contemporary jazz with strong elements of prog-rock, a dash of Brazilian, a smattering of world music, an infusion of folk and a pinch of classical, that veers from avant-garde ensemble passages to free-improv and back.
