This album is a real feat
A huge thank you to Sarah Chaplin for her beautifully detailed review of Lifecycles for London Jazz. Some incredibly kind words that we’re all humbled to read!
‘This album is a real feat. It’s the brainchild of human dynamo and 2014 Parliamentary Jazz Newcomer Award winner, saxophonist/composer Phil Meadows, who in less than 18 months secured himself a prestigious Peter Whittingham Jazz Award, wrote a powerful suite of music from scratch, formed a new 20-strong cross-genre ensemble of talented young players from across the capital to play alongside his own Phil Meadows Group, and recorded an ambitious debut studio album. They wowed audiences when the album launched at King’s Place during the EFG 2014 London Jazz Festival, and have now been nominated for a Parliamentary Award themselves. Meadows must be pleased as punch, and rightly so……..’
