VOTED BEST JAZZ ALBUM IN 2011 by MOJO

NOMINATED FOR THE 2012 PARLIAMENTARY JAZZ AWARDS

"This shimmering jewel of style and substance is jazz at its most exalted, and simply has to be heard. Here's a crude and approximate map reference, but one that gets close to the buried treasure. Imagine guitarist Pat Metheny's trio masterpiece, "Day Trip" add a pianist of commensurate genius, and you are banging on the disc's front door. It is that good". Allaboutjazz
