It’s still early days, with the album release a few weeks away yet, but I’ve been flattered to get some really nice reviews of my new record already. The full album – Dance Little Lady, Dance Little Man, by Sam Braysher with Jorge Rossy and Tom Farmer – is released everywhere on 22nd April.
Eddie Myer, writing for Jazz Views (click to read the full review), called it:
“A triumph of intelligence and sentiment from all in this subtly stand-out recording, with a deceptive simplicity that reveals new depths with each listen.”
“Tone-wise the sound is related to Konitz, Desmond or early Art Pepper but the application is different. He uses notes and phrases differently. Sometimes sparingly other times with virtuoso flourishes. Seeking to redefine a variety of standards without taking away the essence of the tune whilst still making it his own. If he’d been a singer he’d have done with a lyric what Sinatra did.”
(All very flattering comparisons!)
