Like a long shot of rum, this was music that flowed through the body in a warm, tingling rush of excitement.

Adventurous and vibrant, the jazz roots of Indigo were deepened as the group found inspiration in traditions of the Sahara and beyond, with creator Byron Wallen shifting from fiery trumpet to flute and even the haunting sound of a conch shell.

On drums, Tom Skinner wowed with a confident inventiveness which evoked both drum n' bass-style feverishness and Afro-reggae techniques, while the cool composure of Tony Kofi on saxophone could not hide his creative zeal and power.

Bassist Larry Bartley's quiet determination only heightened the intense, bluesy rawness his fast moving fingers conjured up.

Together, they were simply sublime.
