Stolen Horn

“The first time I heard Mat Jodrell play as a very young man, I was struck by two things; his seemingly effortless and unconstrained crossing between styles and his stark originality. Here was a young player that could authentically re-create the ethos of early traditional jazz while still sounding fresh, in the next breath he would tip his hat to post-modern cool and was completely at home with fusion of any sort. Far from making for a clever but directionless wanderer, this all somehow had a cohesion that I can only attribute to Mat’s innate musicality and passion for all that he plays.”
