‘A subtle blend of East and West, that’s brutal and beautiful BBC.

A hard-hitting but wide-ranging set from an admirably tight and robust band led by one of the most charismatic and focused reedsmen on the planet. LondonJazz

Atzmon and the excellent pianist Frank Harrison do to the old parsley-sage tune what John Coltrane and McCoy Tyner did to My Favourite Things Irish Time ****

Conjuring an atmosphere of evocative cinematic suggestion BBC Music Review

Peon to a recent past, when urban spaces belonged to the people who lived in them, and cities had distinct emotional characters Financial Times ****

 ‘The best musician living in the world today’ Robert Wyatt

Gilad Atzmon - clarinet, sax, Yaron Stavi - bass, Eddie Hick - drums, Frank Harrison - piano.
