Pianist and composer Ivo Neame has fast become one of the most interesting musicians to emerge on the UK Jazz scene in recent years and together with some of the most in demand musicians in the business released his second album, Caught in the Light of Day on Edition Records. Over the last few years Ivo Neame has recorded and performed throughout the world on piano and saxophone with diverse artists such as Matthew Herbert, Seb Rochford, F-ire collective big band, Stan Sulzmann, Tim Garland, Jim Mullen, Gerard Presencer, Mark Lockheart, Alec Dankworth, Gilad Atzmon, Henry Lowther and Julian Siegel. Now it is his turn to shine. His album Caught In The Light of Day demonstrates the combined brilliance of his writing and playing. Listen to it once and you’ll be impressed. Listen twice and its gifts will begin to unfold. The quality of the writing and the performances are immediately apparent but on repeated listens you hear how the musicians foster and nurture these compositions. Neame trusts his team and lets them take the form of each track into their own hands. This record is about interplay, about letting the music breathe.
‘Sounding rather like a slippery, angular, latterday MJQ’. OBSERVER
‘A set full of edgy and characterful themes, matched by resourceful, conversational improvising’. GUARDIAN
‘Tightly knit, superbly played music from an increasingly mature musician and composer’. JAZZ MANN
