EP Review: Medeljazz Quartet - Yesternow.

Laurent Medelgi (guitar); Nicolas Fabre (Hammond/Rhodes); Sergio Turetta (bass); Elisabeth Keledjian (drums).
(Review by Lance).
I don't, by and large, review downloads. If someone has forked out postage and packing to send me an album then I will always give then priority in an already overcrowded field.
So why is this EP an exception? Sentiment, I guess. When I read that Michael Steinman of the American blog Jazz Lives had posted enthusiastically about it I knew I had to check it out. 

Michael has long been a friend and supporter of Mike Durham's Classic Jazz Party and videos much of the action for Jazz Lives.
Like myself, Michael was unfamiliar with the four musicians but, again like myself, was impressed.
Who could argue? save to say I wanted more than twenty minutes of this fine group.
To get more - a full blown CD of original music that doesn't do any harm to endangered species (like good taste, for example) - check out this YouTube clip.
