“…this is a thrilling album…there are certainly plenty of moments in ‘About the Moment’ that take your breath away.” [LONDON JAZZ NEWS review of new Simon Lasky Group album, March 2018]

Original quasi-symphonic compositions, driving grooves, rich harmonies, expressive melodies and ecstatic improvisation are at the heart of recordings and performances by The Simon Lasky Group. Formed in 2015 by British pianist and composer Simon Lasky their debut album – ‘Story Inside’ (33Jazz’ Records) – received praise on both sides of the Atlantic and substantial airplay on JazzFM in the UK and National Public Radio in The U.S. ‘London Jazz News’ described Lasky’s music as a “paean to well-constructed, uncluttered composition and honest-to-goodness musical texture.” Signed to ’33Jazz’ Records their eagerly anticipated second album – ‘About The Moment’ – is out now!

“…Lasky’s music constantly evolves, rather than being a set of chord changes, and the emphasis is on ensembles rather than solos…the intriguing music of ‘About the Moment’ is well worth a close listen.” [LA JAZZ SCENE review by Scott Yanow, February 2018]

“ …Listening not only to “About the Moment” but also Simon’s previous release, “Story Inside” it’s clear to see Simons development not only as a composer but also as a pianist. All in all “About The Moment” is a wonderful album that will appeal to a large jazz audience. Highly recommended.” [JAZZ IN EUROPE review by Jan Veldman, February 2018]

“…a hugely impressive follow up to ‘Story Inside’ (2015 release on ’33Jazz’ label) on the part of Lasky and his group.” [JAZZVIEWS magazine review by Euan Dixon, December 2017]

“With influences from Pat Metheny, Simon’s new compositions are startling, exciting, atmospheric and highly effective.” [JAZZ IN READING, Henley Standard concert review by Marc Edwards, October 2017]
