MADHOUSE AND THE WHOLE THING THERE – MIKE WALKER
The best English electric jazz album for the past 30 years.
It’s fusion but not as we know it, from the epic Brazilian influenced opener ‘A Real Embrace’ to the anthemic album closer ‘Dad Logic’, this album takes you on a musical mystery tour that will leave you exhilarated and breathless and ready to instantly listen again and again…..
The album features Iain Dixon on saxes and woodwind, Mikey Wilson on drums, Sylvan Richardson jr on bass and John Ellis on keys, musicians with which Mike has a long association and understanding. Add in percussion, strings, French horn, piano, brass section and vocals and you have the most assured and impressive debut album by a British musician in a long time.
