Lyn's Une - Alyn Cosker - The Herald


23 June 2009
The Herald
Rob Adams
4 Stars

There seems to be no end to Alyn Cosker's talents. The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra drummer has written and arranged everything (except for two collaborations with his partner, singer Maureen McMullan) on this debut album and covers a wide range of styles from power trio to New Orleans-style grooving.

On one track he features a superbly drilled septet - the kind of sophisticated horn-fuelled fusion that came out of Manhattan when the Brecker Brothers were in their pomp.

It's high class all the way, with guests such as Tommy Smith (tenor) and Jason Rebello (piano) unsparing in their creativity.
