Mike’s Walker’s solo release ‘Ropes’ gets a great review at Jazzviews …
Nick Lea writes:
“So all in all ten years in the making from inception to completion, and it has to be said that “Ropes” is definitely worth the wait. Of course during throughout we get to hear some of Mike’s wonderful guitar playing … but the real joy in the album is the sheer breadth of the writing and arrangements for the strings, performed by the Psappha Strings.
“Opening track ‘Still Slippery Underfoot’ is a beautiful way to begin the set … superb contributions from Iain Dixon on soprano saxophone and violinist, Ben Holland. Other notable contributions are heard from pianists Gwilym Simcock, who is exceptional on ‘Devon Bean’, and Les Chisnall who is astonishing throughout.
