I Look At You

Dunmall, Paul / Phillip Gibbs / Alison Blunt / Neil Metcalfe / Hanna Marshall: I Look At You (FMR)

Label: FMR    
Released in: Great Britain    

"Paul Dunmall leads a highly stimulating session of almost classical improvisers ensemble The guitar of Philip Gibbs is balanced by the strings of Alison Blunt and Hanna Marsh, fast making big waves in the improvising circles with their musicality and creativeness All of this topped of with the serene sound of flute virtuoso Neil Metcalfe and off course Dunmall himself, ever omnipotent, providing the spark and trigger for these often ultra delicate excursions into sound this record is a milestone in just how good improvisers are, sounding often as if they played together every day and rehearsed for long periods difficult introverted written contemporary music, but no its all improvised . Fabulous music!!! that will these musicians reputation no harm at all. The sting players are are stunningly good and add so much to the music!"-FMR
