|Nine new compositions from Law, representing a transition from many years' immersion in freely improvised music to a form much closer to conventional jazz, played here by the John Law Quartet.
The current line-up features Tim Garland, whose warm tone and quicksilver improvisational musicality infuse the three tracks he features on. Law's most 'jazz' album to date and yet one which feels very much at home in the European classical traditions in its sensitivity to nuance.
Above all, some of Law's most beautiful compositions. The Moment also introduces into John's music another new sound: the drive and sensitivity of Dave Wickins on drums.
“Polished, melodic, technically assured album...by a seriously talented homegrown player.” (London Evening Standard)
“(The Moment) confirms Law's ability to sound like his own man, whether he chooses to get closer to the mainstream or not.” (The Guardian)
