The Teak Project is a cross cultural collaboration - three of Britain’s finest young improvisers who have come together simply to make their own music. Though they marry Indian music and jazz, their aim is not to break new ground, but rather express their wealth of musical and social experiences. It is not 'jazz' or 'Hindustani classical', it is a unique piece of joinery – classic, seamless – powered by solid and individual vocabularies.
“At last – an East-meets-West to be proud of”
“sweetly serene and melodic”
“An outstanding debut”
“incendiary rhythmic exchanges and lightening melodic invention.
They deliver all this with fresh and exciting verve”
“a series of lovely, intricate, dialogues featuring hypnotic ostinatos and expressive improvisations”
“a combination of virtuoso technique, delicate understatement and absolutely sheer emotional honesty in the performance gives you The Teak Project”
BBC6 Music - Tom Robinson
“Teak unfurls a sophisticated yet earthy sound that extends the Indo-jazz legacy without cliché or complacency”
“beautifully nuanced interplay, wonderful control of dynamics
and subtle drama”
“The devilish complexity of the music does nothing to detract from its sweetness and serenity”
