A joyful fusion of influences in John Law’s Congregation

'The improvisations are fluid, compelling and well developed'

John Law’s Congregation
John Law (piano), James Mainwaring (sax, guitar, electronics), John Long (bass), Dave Smith (drums)

‘Whatever the springboard, the improvisations are fluid, compelling and well developed, ranging from funky to impressionistic (such as the opening section of ‘Scandinavian Lullaby’ with its effective use of electronics) and always gripping the attention.’
