Thane & The Villeins www.youtube.com/watch?v=IaVe-ewSpls is the first album on the brand new independent (ie me) label Hadleigh Jazz Records. It is also the first release of the organ trio I have with my pals Art Themen and Pete Whittaker.
"A first-rate trio..an excellent set..Themen is one of the very few totally original, utterly engaging jazz musicians around" **** Dave Gelly - THE OBSERVER
"Just once in a while one chances upon a new album that is just perfect, and love at first listen. Thane & The Villeins is one of those rare gems." James Henry - BEBOP SPOKEN HERE
"Magesterial..Art's version of Willow Weep For Me is enthralling" Jack Kenny - JAZZ VIEWS
"Themen, a veteran master now, in such eloquent form"
**** Peter Vacher - JAZZWISE
"Cracking album...In any other country he'd be regarded as a national treasure"
Leonard Weinrich - LONDON JAZZ NEWS
"Boistrous and inventive as ever..funky and swinging"
