CD Review: Jam Experiment – Jam Experiment

Alexander Bone (alto & soprano saxophones, synthesisers), Rory Ingham (trombone), Toby Comeau (keyboards & piano), Joe Lee (electric bass) & Jonny Mansfield (drums & percussion)
(Review by Russell)
It’s You opens Jam Experiment’s new album titled Jam Experiment with a drum and bass urgency, a slap-funk bass line and a first solo from co-leader, trombonist Rory Ingham. A positive opening declaration: This is us! Five young musicians living in London, studying at the Royal Academy of Music and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, an award-winning ensemble with careers in music ahead of them, Jam Experiment is an impressive debut.
Chorale (comp Mansfield) and First Day (comp Bone) reveal a collective appreciation of the art of the slower tempo. Sensitivity and listening ears have produced excellent results, equally, the quintet changes gear at will with the horns – Ingham and Alexander Bone – a prominent force on the trombonist’s Enough for Me, pianist Toby Comeau’s tilting Off on a Rant and Ingham’s familiar sounding Get it on Target.
Eight tracks, forty six minutes, Jam Experiment is an impressive calling card. Tour dates, including Herts Jazz (April 23), Ribble Valley Jazz and Blues Festival and a Birmingham Symphony Hall Foyer gig, will further enhance an already high profile – go hear the band for yourself. To purchase the album Jam Experiment by Jam Experiment visit the band’s website: www.jamexperiment.com.
