 With Jason Cooney's sax cruising enigmatically out of the speakers like an antipodean David Murray, The Java Quartet's debut, and by all accounts impulsive, recording is immediately striking. Henri Peipman on piano, Michael Galaezzi on bass and Dave Sanders on drums make up a group that attack each of the five tunes on this EP / album with a confidence that's thoroughly bewitching.

The production is simple, uncluttered, perfect. Each instrument, while proving engaging and impressive in it's own right, works in happy harmony with it's mates. Striding through the thicket of post - bop contemporary jazz with a threateningly insouciant ease and a wicked gleam in the eye, it's to be hoped The Java Quartet begin to promote this excellent piece of work on the live circuit.
