Once again, strengthening the vibrant jazz scene flowing from London, Jazz re:freshed announced another great project, composed by a young and prodigious musician. Sarah Tandy, on the keyboards, is joined by a dream-team of instrumentalists: Sheila Maurice Grey, on trumpet; Binker Golding, on saxophone; Mutale Chashi, on bass; and Femi Koleoso on drums. The result is the sublime Infection In The Sentence, Tandy’s eagerly awaited debut, shaped by London's thriving and diverse live music scene, where jazz is the shared language in an ever-shifting musical landscape.
As Infection In The Sentence softly progresses in its mesmerizing melodies and details we are taken on a trip through the composer’s influences. From the jazz music Tandy grew up listening to the multi-faceted, genre-melting sounds of present day London, mixing the strong sonic-personalities of her bandmates. Swiftly rising to become one of the most in-demand players of her generation, Sarah Tandy’s debut album is the confirmation of her role as a magnificent bandleader. Infection In The Sentence is a piece that should not be missed by the jazz-head’s out there. And somethings are just better on vinyl.
