Ivo Neame Quintet + Alcyona Mick + Sam Crockatt Quartet

Music, Jazz
High quality Loop Collective triple bill topped by increasingly brilliant pianist Neame, whose lynchpin role in Phronesis and Kairos 4tet has enriched both units with lustrous harmonies and dazzling solos aplenty. Yet he's a fine writer and bandleader in his own right as he proves here with his fine band, with top pianist Mick playing a solo set and the melody-soaked sax work of Crockatt in support.
