“simply great jazz – all the playing is excellent and the compositions dynamic and exciting, travelling to many corners of the jazz spectrum – superb” – RootDown Radio
Mike Hobart is an experienced and soulful saxophonist with a warm tone and fluid technique. His compositions capture the detail of the urban experience blending sixties shuffles and Blue Note swing, edgy funk and nuanced R’n’B into a contemporary modernism. The written music acts as signposts, allowing the band to roam freely over the tradition. Miles’ 60s rhythm section is the model, but the content is very different – a lot has happened since then.
