“A band full of the great heavyweights we have on the young British Jazz scene… it’s got that beautiful mixture of extraordinary playing, a kind of chamber jazz feel but with great grooves and extraordinary improvising as well, I’m a fan of this band…I’ve been listening to it a lot actually, I’m a really really big fan of this record”
Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2
“This is a masterly and hypnotic work which lingers at length in the listener’s mind” ★★★★
All About Jazz
“Originally commissioned by the Steinway Festival in 2014, Leak’s Adrift is a suite consisting of eight movements, each one rolling into the next with suspenseful pacing, episodic development and harmonic sophistication. The duo shifts elegantly from post-romantic tremolos, to lush, occasional Gershwin-ish dreamscapes through to more pastoral Satie-jazz flavours.” ★★★★
“Sam Leak is one of the brightest young stars in the jazz piano galaxy, a heavenly improviser and a brilliant prospect for the future.”
Helen Mayhew, JazzFM
“The Royal Academy of Music’s jazz programme has produced a remarkable crop of newcomers in recent times: notably the Mercury-nominated pianists Gwilym Simcock and Kit Downes. Now comes Sam Leak, an artist of comparable promise…Leak is a subtle storyteller who keeps the grooves and colours changing.”
John Fordham, The Guardian
