      Kind of blue? Well, Matthew is at least as bloody brilliant.

        One of the best sounding LP's I've ever heard. A masterpiece in every sense of the word.

          My God, completely floored and blown away by this. The vinyl seems flat, defect free, and jet black beautiful backgrounds. The music is insanely incredible. Modal Jazz at its finest here! Wow, stunning and amazing!!! A++++++++++++++++

            Everything about this is perfection, from the music to the design to the mastering and pressing. If you like listening to jazz on vinyl and you don’t own this album then what are you doing with your life?

              Stunning records, some of the best sounding modern vinyl that I own. The care that went in to making this is very much appreciated.

                This is an outstanding work. Very thoughtful compositions with those sparkling dynamic details that enrich the melodies and offer a miraculous sound that keeps the listener dumbfounded.
                It’s not only the melodic, warm and welcome sound of this album it’s the mind traveling because of this fine British jazz record of the modern era.

                      An absolutely essential piece of work of the contemporary/modal jazz cannon.
