ajatuslapsi Great album recommended for the fans of Mammal Hands (and jazz).

muellermj76 Sublimely played piano-led jazz trio. Complex without ever sounding pretentious, this is contemporary jazz with played with real feeling, and its sweeping melodicism, eschews any semblance of muzak or other such trite reductions that can befall the piano-led trio.

I love lots of different styles of jazz, and this is jazz in beautiful, lyrical form. I could listen to it every day. Favorite track: Seven Sons Of Björn.

Rich Hims Brought to my attention by the Mercury Music Prize nomination of v2.0, I find Fanfares has higher points of visceral engagement with the piano even while it doesn't hang together as smoothly when viewed as a complete work. Favorite track: Last Words.

about

Now with its eighth release Matthew Halsall’s Manchester based Gondwana record label shines a light on another of Manchester’s well kept musical secrets, the expansive, brilliant piano trio GoGo Penguin.

Manchester trio GoGo Penguin are hotly tipped as the rising stars of the UK Jazz scene. An exhilarating live act, drawing on a heady brew of influences from Aphex Twin to Brian Eno, Debussy to Shostakovich and Massive Attack to EST.

The debut album Fanfares has won raves reviews from the Guardian to BBC Music and support from the likes of Mike Chadwick and Gilles Peterson and was nominated for best jazz album at the World Wide Awards. It is the band’s unique ability to synthesis and develop each others melodic and harmonic ideas while drawing on music from classical to electronica that makes GoGo Penguin’s music so enthralling and their debut album such a powerful opening salvo from a powerful new voice in UK music.
