March 5th Ed Jones Quintet
Garry Jackson-Double Bass
”A formidable saxophonist. Ed Jones may have hit his highest profile through his work with bands US3 and Incognito, but he’s an improviser to his fingertips, a player of forceful imagination, and one of the Uk’s most distinctive saxophonists." John Fordham The Guardian.

Dany Noel Martinez (Horacio "El Negro" Hernandez, Concha Buika, Celia Cruz) - bass
Steve Fishwick - trumpet (Scott Hamilton, Lew Soloff, Anita O' Day, Jamie Cullum)

[Zhenya Strigalev] is a fascinating old-school/cutting-edge hybrid, with a formidable bebop-rooted sax technique, a burgeoning talent for composition, and an engaging willingness to take a chance..."
"Held together by sheer bravura, raw energy and no shortage of well-placed virtuosity, Strigalev and his band whip up a a delightfully free-flowing musical storm...Smiling Organizm is Strigalev's fifth and best album to date."
-Bass Guitar Magazine
"This dashing young Russian emigré is a fearless jammer....He's in typically fast company here, leading an international sextet including fellow Russian trumpeter Vitaly Golovnev, chameleonic London pianist Liam Noble and the all-American drum'n'bass team of Eric Harland and Larry Grenadier. Bass-guitarist Tim Lefebvre joins the mix for some nimble neobop, muscular funk and a hilariously punked-up version of Midnight in Moscow. Good value If you like fun and originality with your contemporary jazz.
