The material is sounding terrific – just a few final percussion overdubs to complete before the final mixing and mastering, and preparation ready for an October 2014 release.

Reviews of ‘JetStream’ :  Geoff Dalton of Winster (not an easy man to please): “This music by the JET Collective deserves to be played in major concert halls anywhere in the world. The composition and performance was world class and deserves to be widely heard.”
Judy Hinsliff of Winster; “Once again, I’ve been unable to come and hear you.  But I did hear a rave review from someone, a relative newcomer to the village, who came on Sunday evening.  Given that she thought she didn’t really like jazz or the idea of extemporization, she was ‘blown away.’”

 Praise for the JET COLLECTIVE & the ‘DERBYSHIRE SUITE’. 
The suite has had some fantastic reviews already :”Wonderful exciting music – so vibrant, and of such quality. Jazz themes but with folk hints lurking in the background. It caught the mood and experiences of Derbyshire, from the mines to the morris men. The JET Collective definitely deserves a much bigger stage. If only a BBC producer had been present!!”

“Just listened to the recordings and they are brilliant. This is interesting & beautifully crafted music!”

“Sounds great, excellent compositions, recording and performances!”

“A fantastic sound – the pieces were all so unique”
