Ed Jones Quintet with special guest Max Beasley on vibraphone


"The leader’s impassioned tenor saxophone sets the tone for this impressive set by a quintet of youngish British turks. Drummer Winston Clifford, a commanding presence, drives the band forward with almost terrifying ferocity." Dave Gelly, The Observer.

"Headlong, rushing solos, furious sax and trumpets exchanges, and hypnotic, jazz-trance rhythms are captured vividly, recorded direct to two-track DAT in a digital equivalent to the old Blue Note method." Phil Johnson, Independent.

"Features convincing contemporary hard bop by a band that engages with the real thing. Ed Jones plays with visceral passion... [he] makes compelling music that demands attention." David Lewis, Cadence.
