Jon Lloyd Group
Back by popular demand! The Birmingham Jazz musical hit of 2014 with an all-star line-up. The personnel: Jon Lloyd, soprano saxophone; John Law, keyboards, Rob Palmer, electric guitar; Tom Mason, double bass and Dave Hamblett, drums.
"One of the most distinctive and approachable voices on the British scene... a natural communicator, Lloyd writes music that invites you in. This is highly finished and accomplished modern jazz." Brian Morton, Jazz Journal, May 2014
“Intimate pastoral moods, angular rock riffs and haunting minimalist grooves... fluid and engaging with echoes of Kairos 4te and Wayne Shorter... the stylistic versatility and high quality of this recording [Vanishing Points] make it stand out in a hot month for new releases!” ****Jazzwise, Feb 2014
" The album sees Lloyd moving away from the free-impov roots for which he’s perhaps best known into more harmonically inclined territory, with superb results. There are still vestiges of his earlier style intertwined with the melodies, which provide some exhilarating moments of virtuosity, but it’s all very accessibly packaged without losing any of its force or creative drive...this is definitely a group to catch if you can." John Lyons, JazzUK, Jan 2014
