“If jazz is the music of sweet certain surprise, then Lockheart is the man for you… Built from the past, but creating vivid potentials for the future, Dreamers is the stuff all good jazz is made of.” This new album album has a **** review in the latest (February) edition of Jazzwise magazine.
As a founding member of Loose Tubes and Polar Bear, Mark Lockheart has often remained ahead of the curve and has constantly explored new directions in his own music. Dreamers, his latest outing, epitomises that adaptation and evolution, allowing the music to speak beyond the boundaries of genre.
Lockheart’s multi-faceted outlook on music is explored through a new set of original compositions with this bold and unique sounding group. Expect urgent, exciting grooves and textures all cleverly crafted together within Lockheart’s unique and memorable melodies. There’s a wide range of influences here, Duke Ellington, Wayne Shorter, the Beatles and even Kraftwerk!
"Mark’s capacity to be ahead of the jazz curve is undeniable. In this new band lyrical economy and harmonic creativity abound found. His improvisatory soulmates who clearly know how to make the most of his compositions in their own terms.” Jazzwise magazine
