Ramsden/Lodder: Above The Clouds

cover picture Naxos 86041-2

Mark Ramsden, soprano sax
Steve Lodder, church organ

Jazz projects on pipe resp. church organs get more and more popular. This is one of the first from the British Isles and represents a moderate jazz style. Ramsden and Lodder partially go back to Baroque elements. Their play is full of harmony and straight lines. It's a pity that the organ throughout nearly the complete album plays the part of an accompanist, rather than of a soloist. Nevertheless, both artists show a high level of skill. The album is pleasant to be listened to.
