Latest reviews of Gilad’s album

“Atzmon’s fluid lyricism is in full flow on songbook classics and worldly originals. But as sweet romance morphs to modernist uncertainty, the bittersweet balance and rich emotional palette equally impress.” Financial Times ***** March 2009

“Gilad Atzmon, the expat Israeli saxophonist/clarinetist, combines thrilling jazz musicianship with a maverick political intelligence” Guardian ****

“Like the best of albums” Jazzwise **** March 2009

“Atzmon always manages to tell a story” Uncut **** March 2009

“One of the finest alto players around, Gilad pays his respects to Bird i…It’s striking how similar Gilad’s sweet, open-throated sound is to Parker’s, but as you’d expect from the fiery philosopher-turned-Blockhead, this is no tribute album.” BBC Music Magazine March 2009

“Maybe because he’s such a wild card himself, saxophonist Atzmon plays Charlie Parker with a perfect mix of bluster and vulnerability.” The Independent March 2009

“Atzmon is surely the hardest-gigging man in British jazz…the music here is subtle, ambiguous, often beautiful – and features a saxophonist playing deep from the heart.” The Times **** March 2009

“An avid Charlie Parker disciple…” Evening Standard March 2009

“This is an outstanding album.” Allaboutjazz March 2009

“is almost like a suite, with one track leading into the next” Scotland on Sunday**** March 2009

“A genuine expression of love” Scotsman**** March 2009

“The fiery Atzmon took his show from a demure chamber-music lilt to a Coltrane-inspired roar and back, and the crowd was right there through it all.” Guardian Live Review ****

“A delightful evening of artfully crafted music that was rich with emotional complexity.” Financial Times March 2009

“Musical genius and comic” Leicester Mercury March 2009

“Work of beauty, power and intense sonic vision” Morning Star April 2009

“Atzmon is a loose cannon: a larger than life figure with an almost overpowering musical personality… it’s as perfect a jazz marriage as you could wish for”

Phil Johnson, independent on Sunday Jazz Critic

“Atzmon is a hell of a talent…essential listen for all contemporary music fans. Atzmon has done what all the best jazzers do and put his own stamp on his chosen material. This may be loving tribute to a mythic past but it is one with an unmistakably contemporary edge” The Jazz Man ****
