Reviews for The Assessment

U.K. guitarist Simeon Harris follows in the footsteps of guitar innovators like David Torn and Robert Fripp in his approach to the way technology can be subverted to his six-string needs. Loops and electronics form the bed on which his lyrical, effects-heavy guitar tosses, turns and rolls. Buoyed by samples of UFO researcher Robert Dean (the record is sort of a concept piece about U.S. alien research), Harris combines his love for his explorative idols with his background in U.K. funk bands to produce accessible, often mesmerizing instrumentals like “Intron” and “Thirty Metres Across.” Creative and thought-provoking, The Assessment is above all a pleasure to hear. Michael Tolan, High Bias LiveJournal (2006)

An irresistibly powerful groove! A great rocking debut for one of the UK’s up and coming producers/musicians

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
