Voted most memorable gig in 2010 by three out of five journalists in JazzUK
GUARDIAN 4 STARS ****
“Jazz supergroups are volatile concoctions, bespoke teams of virtuosi often just getting in each other’s way. But the Anglo-US quartet built from scratch this week around the untried partnership of pianist Gwilym Simcock and Salford Mike Walker, with Americans Steve Swallow on bass and Adam Nussbaum on drums, fulfilled all its promise – and then some”.
“A packed Embrace Arts Centre enjoyed a world-class performance by an international jazz group on its way to Ronnie Scott’s and a European tour”.

“Let’s hope it becomes more than a one-tour stand. The band is going on to play around Europe but if you are within driving distance of either Leicester (Embrace Arts Centre tonight) or London (Ronnie Scott’s tomorrow) – so, anywhere on the mainland, in other words – I’d urge you to get along. It’s the real deal”.
