Gerard Presencer - Platypus - Independent On Sunday


16 August 1998
Independent On Sunday
PJ

Long-awaited debut from the young trumpeter whose career has been as close to a meteoric rise as British jazz permits.The two poles of acoustic and electric jazz are circumnavigated in a very impressive, pleasingly retro-ish, fusion. The airy flights of Jason Rebello's Fender Rhodes and John Paricelli's guitar are contrasted with the early rhythms of Andrew Cleyndert's double bass and Jeremy Stacey's drums, while Presencer - who plays flugelhorn throughout - sounds exactly like the master we have long known him to be.
