Thanks to London Jazz News for an upbeat review of Michael J. Bolton’s epic “Earthrise” – his talent-packed tribute to the Apollo 11 mission of 1969.

In his review, Rob Mallows celebrates this…

“… cut of power jazz, which is orchestrated in such a way that it could easily fit alongside a BBC4 retrospective of the mission, such is the grandeur and awe in parts of the music…

“When as a musician you have one of the great human endeavours to draw upon, it must be very hard not to make something suitable as a tribute, and Mr Bolton’s is a worthy salute to Apollo. Per ardua, ad astra!”

Michael’s ambitious project features jazz guitar supremo Mike Walker and soprano sax from Marc Russo and Tim Garland, keyboards by David Hentschel (who also mixed and mastered the album), and Michael himself on bass/rhythm guitar and synths.
