Still Sounds Like Bromley

by Billy Jenkins



Billy's classic follow up to Sounds Like Bromley, digitally reissued on Billy's own bandcamp site as part of the 40 years of SE London Aural Art recordings.

'Sounds Like Bromley' (Plymouth Sounds LBB1) was released on vinyl in 1982. This is the update, a decade later. Heavier, more crowded, more metal, concrete and commerce. David Vine's steel pans, Django Bates' and acid king James Taylor's keyboards form the aural backdrop for saxophonist Iain Ballamy, trombonist Roland Bates, bass guitarist Mark Mondesir and drummer Martin France. Stylistically set in the early Seventies, it is a companion CD to the 'True Love Collection' (Babel BDV 9821).

A 'Top Twenty Jazz CD Of The Year' for the Virgin Megastore 1997

'A zany but curiously touching portrait of the Jenkins home town as it is now.' Dave Gelly / The Observer

'This is classic Jenkins material. Billy's music may sound off-centre at times (well, all the time really) but when listening with a smile you can fully appreciate his reasoning and enjoy his musical view of life.'
David Lands / Jazz Journal
