Gerard Presencer - Platypus- Yorkshire Evening Express
Gerard's first release under his own name is long overdue. Here is the spirit of the last twenty years of jazz - Miles, Metheny, Brecker - remade as refreshingly as a cold buck's fizz on the morning after. Fender Rhodes piano and flutey favourite 50 were whittled down to 11 - but hey, their young following probably won't even realise they're timeless classics. Classic hits given the 911 treatment include the bee Gees' More Than a Woman, Paul Weller's Your The Best Thing and The real Thing's Can't Get By Without You. Their teenage fans are bound to love it.
