Some reviews and feedback from the press and blogosphere...
"The harmony and attack of the opening track remind of Chick Corea, but Edinburgh-based Jamie Smith ranges through various styles in these four solo piano improvisations, including a plain ol' blues. He never fails to play with a compelling logic and sense of development and the improviser's trap of aimlessness is avoided, the most so coherent it's almost as if the pieces were prepared. It's a set one could happily return to any time without fear of irritation or disappointment. Recommended, and quickly avaiable online. "

"If an octopus had access to a real book, a random page number generator and an 8 bars backwards play rule, that would be some feat, as is this."
