ARTIST REVIEWS
There Will Be Time
There Will Be Time

"Exhibits much promise. The album borrows heavily from Monk, Blakey and others but Edis brings enough of himself to the proceedings, particularly on the slower numbers, to keep it interesting."

Mr Hipster
Mr Hipster

"Another impressive statement from Edis. His numerous influences cohere to create a convincing whole and the entire album is shot through with a sense of fun that can only add to its appeal. "
