Wish Hill - All Jigged Out
'Every track's a gem in its own right..very satisfying indeed'- Living Tradition
"Every track's a gem in its own right..very satisfying indeed" Living Tradition
"An exhilarating exploration of the 'new-folk' genre .... an inspiring mix of original and traditional tunes" Tradition
"A promising debut album from an English folk/jazz/funk quartet" Songlines
All Jigged Out rock the tradition with much finesse, being excellent players one by one.
Their fusion of tight rock rhythms, jazz and funk bass lines, folk and Celtic musical forms alongside jazz and classical influences is hard to fault. It’s assured, delivered well and magnificently arranged
Rock ‘n’ Reel Magazine
highly intelligent and innovative arrangements of traditional tunes .. seamlessly integrated into and alongside original compositions... These demonstrate a stunning level of assuredness and breadth of musical scope, with a concomitant blend of improvisatory fluidity and high-level structuredness that inevitably stems directly from their jazz experiences and leanings - not many ensembles manage to bring this kind of stuff off, but AJO sure do - and take it further than most in the process! All the musicians involved play with a startling degree of accomplishment....Very satisfying indeed.
