The Independent on Sunday – June 10th 2012 Album: Gavin Barras Quintet, Day of Reckoning (ASC) The first jazz response to last summer’s riots, inspired by bassist Barras’s experience travelling back from a gig at Ronnie Scott’s to his home in Manchester, where he watched TV news with the sound down as he composed the material for this album.
