Overview

ZHENYA STRIGALEV saxophone, electronics

LINLEY MARTHE bass

«A formal 1950s BBC voice introduces the album’s action, through which Strigalev’s alto displays bebop agility, shivery lyricism, or sometimes a bluesy Ornetteish swerve. Reading Shakespeare is like a speeded-up Russian folk dance played by a free-improv group; Some Thomas is a jaunty tribute to Strigalev’s hero Sonny Rollins, and there are glimpses of UK expat pianist John Escreet and James Farm bassist Matt Penman.» – The Guardian

«Every phrase had a superb decisiveness, as if carved from stone, and they were marked with meaningful silences which generated a huge tension. Strigalev may cut a somewhat eccentric figure, but his playing has a mastery which puts him right at jazz’s heart.» – The Telegraph
