Michael is an award-winning composer, orchestrator and multi-instrumentalist. His credits include performing, writing and producing music for film and TV, as well as working with some of the biggest names in pop music.

Drawing on a lifetime s experience of working as sideman to some of the great names of soul jazz and as a composer for film and TV, Michael J McEvoy has finally found his way home to his love of jazz. These two strands to his career have meant he has been able to call upon the services of a stellar cast of UK jazz musicians to play a series of original pieces that spread their wings beyond the normal forms and references found on many jazz releases. The sketches at the root of these compositions have grown in mood and tone, becoming immensely satisfying on the ear whilst retaining a solid groove. It may have been a long way home, but McEvoy has arrived.

This has got instant appeal. And it s over far too soon. With a melodic 1970s vibe to start with on the title track opener and Gerard Presencer s bluesy horn commentary over a strong rhythm section of pianist McEvoy joined by Empirical bassist Tom Farmer and the Golden trio s James Maddren this is the former musical director of Steve Winwood s time to shine. --Stephen Graham, Marlbank

It s certainly one to put you in the right mood before a big night on the town. --Selwyn Harris, Jazzwise

4 Stars This is an exciting and varied album, the best of British modern jazz, with thanks to the crowd-funding which helped to pay for it. --Ron Burnnett, The York Press
