Two tenors, Hammond organ, and drums – nothing else at all, which makes for a mighty sharp little record! The group’s led by tenorist Dave O’Higgins, but it draws equal power from guest Max Ionata on tenor too – and each player appears in a different channel of the record, so you can definitely separate their contributions – all while enjoying the wonderful rhythm driven by the organ of Ross Stanley and drums of Luca Santaniello! We’re not sure we’ve ever heard Stanley before, but we really love him – and he’s got this bold, rich command of the Hammond that really sets the scene perfectly – igniting the record with plenty of energy right from the start, which seems to inspire the tenors even more. Titles include “Fourplay”, “Lady Face”, “Donna”, “Medication”, “Satosong”, and “Song For Capetown”. © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.


ここからオルガンの深~い世界にハマってしまいそうです・・・文句なしに全曲カッコイイ!! – diskunion


英国の実力派サックス奏者率いるオルガントリオにイタリアを代表するテナー奏者を加えたユニークなコラボレーション。切れ味の良いビバップとソウルフルなオルガンが絶妙に溶け合い、抑制の効いた洗練されたダンディズムを浮き彫りにしたイケメンなジャズ。(工藤由美/CD Journal – January 2019)
