CD Review
JMQ – Live @ Atlantis
CD Review from Jazz Scene


'This CD was recorded at the Atlantis Studios in front of a small audience who don't get in the way of some very good music of the vocal and instrumental varieties. Of the latter, there are Bop versions of Invitation, Where or When and Tell me a Bedtime Story, each giving rein to the invention of the soloists in between the fine arrangements. The four vocalists, who have appeared with the band on club dates, are all expert in swingers and ballads, of which the classic Bye, Bye Blackbird by Yvette Johansson, At Last by Rebecca Mendoza, Just One of Those Things by Julie O'Hara and Night & Day by Bob Valentine, are representative of the 10 vocal tracks. The final track is by the augmented line-up and is a brassy blaster that inspires a desire to catch the band at one of its 'live' gigs around the traps, where you'll surely buy this CD.'
