RUPERT LEIGHTON All Kinds Of Fine Rupert Leighton
Truly living up to his album title ALL KINDS OF FINE, British pianist and composer Rupert Leighton stirs up an enticing mix that includes groove-driven, in the pocket smooth jazz, improvisational straight ahead jazz, stride and soothing new age elegance. Adding to the expansive sonic intrigue, Leighton also plays vibraphone, alto sax and bass. All of these delights add up to ALL KINDS OF FINE!
I thought Mr.Leighton’s first recording was outstanding but he has surpassed himself with his latest one. This is superbly composed, produced and arranged and contains an excellent mix of themes and moods. It is atmospheric, innovative and haunting with strong melody content and excellent rhythm. From first to last, ‘Take the Sidewalk’ is of the highest quality. Full marks! – (JOHN REID, KEITH COMMUNITY RADIO, UK)
‘It is good to see that contemporary jazz is in more than capable hands. Rupert’s inclusion of that mellow groove mixed with a dash of chill, creates a very personal album. A must have!’ – (TONY BATES, HIGHLANDS 100.7FM RADIO, AUSTRALIA)
