Jack Hues and The Quartet Shattering CD
The Quartet’s second album - from 2008 - is a lyrical homage to the psychedelic jazz rock synthesis of the Canterbury bands of the 1960s and 1970s (Soft Machine, Caravan, Matching Mole...).
More pared down and muscular than its predecessor, the album echoes some of the same themes with the Mingus-influenced ‘Dark Moon’ and the exquisite Miles Davis references of ‘Lights Out’, while the four new 'Canterbury Tales' provide perfect spaces for virtuoso solos from the band.
The album features a line-up of Jack Hues, guitar, Sam Bailey, piano joined by Tom Mason, double bass, Dave Smith drums, Paul Booth, tenor saxophone and Duncan MacKay, trumpet.
Immaculately produced by Chris Hughes, this album captures the brilliance of Jack Hues’ and Sam Bailey’s writing and the sheer spontaneity, energy and power of the band live.
