Live Review: Partikel with Benet McLean at The Verdict
Partikel with Benet McLean
The Verdict, Brighton
Friday 26th June, 2015
It’s rare to see a contemporary jazz group and be completely in awe of their talent from the very beginning but this was the case with Partikel who were joined by virtuoso violinist Benet McLean, who played with such amazing feeling (and aided by a tremendous technique) that it left many audience members moved and enthralled.
Performing tunes from their latest album, String Theory, and a selection from their two previous albums, there was plenty of interaction amongst the band members, including some powerful yet sensitive drumming from Eric Ford and interweaving melodic lines from saxophonist Duncan Eagles.
With intelligent and sensitive playing throughout, this group have a great sound and a great repertoire of original material.
