Amazon Reviews
Five Stars - Shanti Paul Jayasinha brings world jazz to a new level, 8 Jan 2008 By Henry Takoma "Henry" (London) This review is from: Round Trip (Audio CD) This is the first CD from Shanti Paul Jayasinha, and the first of many, I am sure. The music is full of gorgeous melodies, supported by infectious grooves and world class improvisation. Shanti Paul's sound on trumpet is bright and confident, and on flugelhorn it is warm and plangent. Patrick Clahar, a former member of Incognito, balances his tenor sound to perfectly match that of the trumpet, and the supporting cast of John Crawford on piano, Andy Lafone on bass and Davide Giovannini on drums create just the right moods for each composition. There are also magnificent contributions form David Pattman on all sorts of Cuban percussion, Tim Garland on Sax, Jim Le Messurier on Peruvian percussion, Chris Wells (Drums + Perc) on a Brazilian Maracatu, and the CD finishes with a big band tune, Outono, a Brazilian samba in 3, featuring many of the stars of the London scene.
Highly enjoyable music that I could listen to many times and still find something new in it.

Five Stars - Definitely a first class round trip, 8 Jan 2008 By Sue J This review is from: Round Trip (Audio CD) This is a really creative, sophisticated and unique album with the fusion of jazz and different rhythms ,and great musicianship from all the musicians involved. My favourite tracks are the Brazilian influenced Outono - a beautiful composition, previously recorded by Nois - it's good to hear it again & Rooftop Samba - both have a poignancy about them.
