16th May 2017: ★★★★ from In Music for Tori Freestone’s ‘El Barranco’ among latest reviews

Reaching into the heart of improvised music has become second nature to British tenor saxophonist Tori Freestone and perennial colleagues Dave Manington (double bass) and Tim Giles (drums) on their latest Whirlwind release El Barranco. Following their warmly-received 2014 release In the Chop House and subsequent live appearances, the trio have relished the opportunity to reconvene in the studio to record this collection of intuitive explorations (often first takes) of predominantly original compositions, including a pair of London Jazz Festival commissions.

Here are the latest press highlights for El Barranco:

“’El Barranco’ is a gem… A highly professional affair.”
Concerto Magazine (website)

“Full of colour, chromatic diversity and rich nuances.”
