Praise for “New Ansonia”

“A Sensational debut! The kind of album I expect of musicians who have spent more than forty years on the Jazz stages of the world.” Concerto Magazine (Austria) ★★★★★

“An impressive debut… Mullov-Abbado couples a melodic gift with a mature balance of complex orchestration and jazz looseness…” John Fordham, The Guardian ★★★★

“The talent gathered on this album is astonishing… enjoy this unfailing inventive, artfully produced, and delightfully sunny debut.” Ivan Hewett, The Telegraph ★★★★ (Best Jazz Albums 2015)

“Enormous musicality with no lack of inspiration. The music is unpredictable and full of adventure, surprises and playfulness. Rarely are there so many different sounds on a single jazz album. Many of the most intimate sounds and many strong moments.” Roland Spiegel, BR Klassik (Germany)

“Quite a debut… A strong statement from Mullov-Abbado, who displays with this album sufficient punch to show he’ll be around for a long time.” Rob Mallows, Kind Of Jazz

“An important but unpretentious new talent in the modern jazz scene… Beautifully unfurling melodies… Let the music speak for itself.” Benjamin Huston, The Oxford Student

“A young quintet… deliver and then some, with co-producer Julian Joseph adding a professional gloss… this is an impressive work.” Jane Cornwell, The Evening Standard

“A gorgeous album which has been filling the Bacon household with that same joy on repeat play for a good few weeks now.” Peter Bacon, The Jazz Breakfast

“That’s one way to make a debut because that’s really assured playing and brilliant writing… what a band!” Stephen Duffy, BBC Radio Scotland: The Jazz House

“One is immediately seduced by the harmonic richness and maturity of the all-original compositions.” Christian Grimauld, Couleurs Jazz (France)

“An absolute delight… a testament to a very talented bassist, composer, arranger and bandleader.” Ian Maund, What’s New Jazz Magazine

“Very talented… an exceptional debut.” Claire Martin, BBC Radio 3: Jazz Line-Up
