Edition News

Ivo Neame’s new album ‘Caught in the Light of Day‘ is out today. With recent features in Jazzwise and Metro his new album looks set to become of the most exciting releases this year. Check it out today.

Over the last few years Ivo Neame has recorded and performed throughout the world on piano and saxophone with diverse artists such as Matthew Herbert, Seb Rochford, F-ire collective big band, Stan Sulzmann, Tim Garland, Jim Mullen, Gerard Presencer, Mark Lockheart, Alec Dankworth, Gilad Atzmon, Henry Lowther and Julian Siegel.

With Caught in the Light of Day featuring Jim Hart on vibes, Jasper Hoiby on bass and James Maddren on drums  it’s his turn to shine!

Ivo Neame’s new album ‘Caught In The Light of Day’ demonstrates the combined brilliance of his writing and playing. Listen to it once and you’ll be impressed. Listen twice and its gifts will begin to unfold. The quality of the writing and the performances are immediately apparent but on repeated listens you hear how the musicians foster and nurture these compositions. Neame trusts his team and lets them take the form of each track into their own hands. This record is about interplay, about letting the music breathe.
