3 stars Ricky Gardiner lays down some mean Hendrix-inspired solos here and there on this debut album, but the show is well and truly stolen by organist Alan Park. Indeed, most of the compositions here simply involve the rhythm section playing at a frantic pace and Park playing his guts out, referencing as many different well-known classical anthems as possible whilst Ricky dives in with his guitar work here and there to spice things up. I wouldn't call this a top- rank album because its compositions are a bit *too* dependent on that schtick - sooner or later listening to the album becomes an exercising in spotting the classical quotations rather than actually enjoying the music - but it's a good enough first effort.
