WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT FORGOTTEN THINGS

“Soaring jazz from young Scots.”

“the overall impression is of five musicians working for the common good in creating genial melodic music of a consistently high standard.”

Rob Adams, The Herald

 

“The band gel impressively on the compositions of both leaders, which are bright, melodic and distinctive, unaffectedly weaving together influences not only from the straightahead jazz tradition, but also from folk and classical music.”

Chris Parker, The Vortex

 

“a thoughtfully composed and beautifully played set of tunes, and a disc which reveals fresh delights with each listen.”

Peter Bacon, The Jazz Breakfast

 

“The joint leaders turn in strong performances, Kershaw is in his usual inventive form on both alto saxophone and clarinet, and Hoenig’s intelligent and responsive drumming is a constant pleasure.”

Kenny Mathieson, The List

 

“From the effervescent cascade of unison piano and guitar notes that launch the album’s opener, Diddley Diddley, to the terse yet lyrical strolling of the closing If I Could Sing A Love Song, this is an album that manages to be satisfyingly busy, tonally vivid and, dare one say, fun.”

Jim Gilchrist, The Scotsman
