From April 23rd All About Jazz runs an interview with me (Graham Collier), makes my early music available for download in their new MP3 store
, reviews Hoarded Dreams
, and offers me up to the world for questioning in 'Catching Up With...'
Apart from that, I'm now back from my five week birthday tour of northern Europe, with this accolade from The Guardian review of the Derby Jazz Festival commission concluding a highly successful period: Hearing Collier rehearsing his swelling brass chords behind long-time associate Harry Beckett's skipping trumpet lines was a reminder of what a special place the two of them occupy in UK jazz evolution."
Also noteable is this comment from a review of a half-hour talk on my career in Ray's Jazz Shop in Foyles, London: At 70, this guy is still the hip dude who [recorded] Aberdeen Angus in 1969."
Reviews of Hoarded Dreams, the previously unissued all star big band recording from 1983, continue to arrive. Here are some brief extracts: brash and extroverted musicality;" consistently exciting, at times downright exhilarating;" a touchstone for Graham Collier's music."
