Both the HAQ and Beats & Pieces EPs have been reviewed by Sean Gregson in the Tasty Fanzine (www.tastyfanzine.org.uk) – cheers Sean! You can read both by clicking here (HAQ immediately follows Beats & Pieces) but selected highlights for both follow, HAQ first…
Guitarist, Anton Hunter, and sax player, Sam Andreae, weave beautiful melodies that create a real sense of story-telling… What’s so impressive about HAQ is their ability to cut through the shit and get right to those basic emotions we all share, each track offering a truly distinctive and unique journey.
…when I first heard the Beats and Pieces Big Band, my mind drifted to a future where I could say, ‘Me? Oh, yeah, I’ve been into them since the beginning’. It’s hard to place the music that they create. Attempting to describe is a challenge in itself. Let’s just say, though, this is a beast.
The Beats & Pieces EP was also recently featured in the March 2010 issue of Jazzwise magazine, where it was featured in Mike Chadwick’s Cutting Edge chart at number 9… Mike’s also played tracks from the EP on his show on Jazz FM, cheers for the support!
