Zoo: End Of The Telegraph Wires

Zoo are a modern jazz trio from the UK who were formed a the turn of the decade, End Of The Telegraph Wires being their sixth full length release. Karen Clegg has a distinctive voice that provides a mesmerising vibe when set against the bands smooth yet evocative arrangements. And if the word 'Jazz' is an immediate turn off or gives you shudders down the spine then you'll be relived to hear that Zoo succeed in making it far more accessible than most without any hints of self-indulgence. They are clearly on a mission to bring it kicking and screaming into the 21st Century and with the exception of the near ten minute 'Big Red Bus' the tracks are generally around the six minute mark and sound all the better for it. There are a number of subtle blends of acoustic and electric touches that is further enhanced by the crisp and clear production.

A genuine contemporary jazz album that is both refreshing and enjoyable.
