Reviews of Tides

various / 2002 / various
Some of the most beautiful music you will hear this year … lithe and buoyant …. has the hairs rising on the back of your neck. Peter Bacon, Birmingham Post Here are wondrous ideas, perfectly executed and with exquisite sound. Garry Booth, BBC Music Magazine Intensely sad, celebratory, ruminative. Thoughtful and impressionistic contemporary music that rewards repeated listenings. Andrew Vine, Yorkshire Post A dark, cinematic, gorgeous thing filled with strange grooves. Time Out Jazz and classical music should go together more often if the new album 'Tides' is anything to go by. Intelligent, confident, accessible … a labour of love rather than a product. John L Walters, The Guardian A very English, very appealing fusion. John Bungey, The Times Unusually colourful and seductive depths … created by Riley's restless sense of personal odyssey. Selwyn Harris, Jazzwise Magazine A very special event. The Guardian An extremely intelligent and enjoyable experimental fusion, similar to a spider-web in all its extreme complexity, beautiful to watch, and absolutely unpredictable. Lara Bellini, Musica Jazz Magazine More gigs like these please. John L Walter, The Guardian
