Jazzwise Albums of the Year

16th November 2016

We are proud to present three albums in the Jazzwise Albums of the Year for 2016.

#1 Jazzwise Album of the Year


EDN1072 Tim Garland One 1500 x 1500

“Few world-class jazz improvisers are comparably imaginative composers, but the British reeds player Tim Garland is that rarity.” THE GUARDIAN

“… a beautifully crafted set of new compositions that reflect on his formative influences.” THE FINANCIAL TIMES

“…the finest album by a British jazz musician for quite some while.” JAZZWISE MAGAZINE

One is the new, highly energetic and unifying studio album from Tim Garland. Working with his regular collaborators Jason Rebello, Asaf Sirkis and Ant Law, the sax maestro has dug back into his past and re-examined his early interest in jazz-rock styles. With One Tim explores many of the influences that have guided him from the beginning, such as jazz-rock (his Canterbury roots); saxophone players from both sides of the Atlantic; the Celtic guitar music from long running project Lammas; the Latin and Spanish inflections that are so deeply a part of Chick Corea’s music; and a variety of rhythmic patterns learned from drum maestros Bill Bruford and Asaf Sirkis.

TIM GARLAND  soprano and tenor sax and additional keyboards

#10 Jazzwise Albums of the Year

PHRONESIS ‘Parallax’


“The chemistry joining pianist Ivo Neame – with his Django Batesian rhythm-swaps hitched to classic jazz roots in Bill Evans and Chick Corea – to Jasper Hoiby’s double-bass muscle and the maniacally personal sound of drummer Anton Eger make Phronesis a wonderful live band. But though live recordings have represented them best, this single-day Abbey Road session gets very close.” THE GUARDIAN

“Imagine if Chick Corea and Stanley Clarke convened a modern edition of Return to Forever that opted for acoustic instrumentation instead of electric, while retaining the high-velocity improvisational jousting and flair. Such impressions casually make their way onto Parallax, the sterling new disc from…Phronesis….Given that this trio has been together for 10 years, it comes as no surprise that the accord among the three musicians is striking; melodies and improvisations unfold without announcing themselves too forcefully.” DOWNBEAT
