Review for "Late Night"

January 19th 2022

“★★★★...In lending their ample talents to this enticing session, Fyfe and his companions submit that Late Night can be a "happy" time as well, a premise that is impressively borne out on every number. These are four musicians who know where they are going and have fun getting there.”

Review for "Late Night"

January 21st 2022

“★★★...Elegantly formal and has a cloak of restraint. However it clearly demonstrates that he is an accomplished pianist. The band continues on its excursion across musical styles, tempos and harmonies, showing that although this is not a regular aggregation, they have the chops to deliver the goods.”

Review for "Late Night"

January 21st 2022

“Right from the opening guitar chords hitting your ears, you know you're in for something special here. These four Canadians decamped to London, Fyfe's current home base, and blasted away on some swinging, jumping club jazz that can turn a clod into a finger popping daddio. In the pocket at all times, this crew are true practitioners of the art and they deliver like champs.”

“Late Night is an intricate project that sees seven of Fyfe’s own compositions complemented by a poignant solo recording of Billy Strayhorn’s ‘Lush Life’. The pianist’s favourite track, ‘To Wes’, is a cheerful, high-energy bop, a tribute to the legendary American jazz guitarist Wes Montgomery. Across the tracks, Fyfe meanders around the keys in a series of impressive solos, bolstered throughout by his quartet.”

“Among the many moods that Sean calls forth with his music, perhaps joyfulness is the most dominant” wrote one reviewer of Canadian pianist Sean Fyfe’s first album as leader. He has been based in the UK since 2021, and is in the process of making quite a name for himself as a bandleader here. His next concerts in Guildford and Luton will feature top UK musicians playing the music from a new album, due for release in early 2024.”
