Album: Roger Beaujolais Quartet, Mind the Gap (Stay Tuned)


An umpteenth album of mobile, articulate, mellifluous small-group modern jazz by the London-based vibraphonist, in train with Robin Aspland (piano), Simon Thorpe (bass) and the redoubtable and, on this occasion, delicate Winston Clifford (drums).

A handful of originals kick back with stuff by Wes Montgomery, Milton Nascimento, Chick Corea and Thad Jones. Not to be confused with the MJQ (although you might be forgiven…).
