Brandon Allen Quartet
Quartet led by tenor saxophonist Brandon Allen featuring Ross Stanley (keyboards), Arnie Somogyi (acoustic & electric bass) and Matt Home (drums).
"Allen and his colleagues surpassed the usual limits of the ‘jazz tribute’ thanks to their innovative arrangements, inspired soloing and all round superb playing."
"The playing, from a well balanced quartet, is superb throughout with everybody acquitting themselves well, particularly leader Allen for whom this whole project was so obviously a labour of love."
