Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 2020)

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

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.
