Description

Known widely for his linchpin roles with Phronesis and Marius Neset's group, effulgent beacon of contemporary jazz piano, Ivo Neame, takes a side step from his octet and other projects to release this exciting quintet title 'Strata'.

Collaborating again with UK luminaries (including three fellow Whirlwind artists) Tori Freestone (saxes/flutes), Jim Hart (vibraphone), Tom Farmer (bass) and Dave Hamblett (drums), this collection of eight Neame originals gyrates energetically with complex written grooves and varying instrumental colours to spark opportunities for venturous, improvised blowing.

At the heart of the album is the inquiring, pianistic mastery of Neame, striking richly eclectic seams which, at times, might just as easily suggest Debussy or Stravinsky as the more obvious influences of Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea and John Taylor. A player whose style - whether through programmatic or differing improvisatory structures - is certainly distinct amongst today's jazz pianists.

Personnel: Ivo Neame (piano, keys, accordion), Jim Hart (vibraphone), Tori Freestone (saxes, flutes), Tom Farmer (double bass), Dave Hamblett (drums)
