Here we have a trio comprising Mike Bogle (Hammond B3, vocals), Richard McClure (guitar) and Ivan Torres (drums) with a five-track album which is 34 minutes long. I see this has been given a 5* review on Amazon, but I can only believe that the person who did so is listening to an album quite different to what I am playing. That all three are great musicians is never in doubt, that they all play and bounce off each other is a given, but for me this is the type of jazz which gives music a bad name. it is what I expect to be played in a venue where no-one actually listens to the music as they are too busy drinking and eating. Not something to which I will quickly be returning, if ever.

Rating: 3/10
