“Jackson Garrett is the nom-de-plume of composer Christopher Gore and his ten piece big band. And what a band it is - a hybrid jazz and rock band, the sound is huge and beefy, with a punchy impact that will make the listener stare in surprise at his loudspeakers. In terms of style this album falls somewhere between the equally hybrid rock-jazz sound of 70s British 'superband' CCS and The Crusaders. Rock guitar solos sit alongside funky sax, backed up with punchy brass and, one has to say, rather a sexy siren vocal chorus. Let Sleeping Dogs Lie is an extremely sassy album, full of in your face tunes and sparkling performances from all the musicians involved. Christopher Gore writes a mean tune and knows how to get the best from both the musicians and the music - he even sings on one or two tracks. Great fun and highly recommended.”
