Label Love Vol. 5: The Jazz Edition (Impossible Ark Records) by Allsopp, Vosloo, Stanley, Giles
James Allsopp is a multi-instrumentalist and composer. His previous project Freud, which also featured drummer Tim Giles, was described as “what the term cutting edge was meant for” by the Guardian's John Fordham. Their new trio “The Golden Age of Steam”, blurs the line between contemporary classical music, electronics and the full spectrum of Jazz improvisation from the blues all the way to the extremities of the avant-garde. As a sideman James has played in the UK and all over Europe and the U.S.A with many musicians including The Brian Irvine Ensemble, Polar Bear, David Axelrod, Paul Dunmall, Dylan Bates, Stan Sultzmann and Graham Collier. James & Tim are joined by Riaan Vosloo, bass player and arranger Vosloo, leader of the influential band Twelves and original member of Nostalgia 77. Riaan is frequently noted in the critical press for his musicianship and for his musical initiatives. The group is completed by Ross Stanley. Ross is a tireless performer and recording musician, whose credits include Heritage Orchestra, Steve Howe, Marlene Verplanck & Dennis Rollins.comments powered by Disqus
