    Evening Standard's Album Review (4 Stars)

    http://www.standard.co.uk/l

    GILAD ATZMON & THE ORIENT HOUSE ENSEMBLE
    Songs  of the Metropolis
    (World Village)
    ****
    The fiery Israeli who hit London with a jazz-and-politics double whammy in  2000 has mellowed into a souvenir-collecting world traveller. Paris, Vienna, Berlin, Moscow and Manhattan are among his new titles here, each appropriately seasoned with local flavourings which add accordion, soprano sax and clarinet to the leader’s meaty alto saxophone. Buenos Aires, Tel Aviv, Scarborough Fair and even Somewhere in Italy also make the cut, but surprisingly not Cricklewood Broadway. Faithful Frank Harrison adds lyrical flourishes from the piano and the whole dish is  heated by Yaron Stavi’s mellow bass and the sizzling drums of rookie Orienteer Eddie Hick. Their album-launch UK tour calls at the Pizza Express Jazz Club in Dean Street tonight and tomorrow.
