Read Left Lion's review

"These guys are undoubtedly amazing musicians, and boast that enviable talent where every instrument they touch becomes a natural extension of the body. In the second half of the evening ZOO and guest, Barker, really began to cook. There was some stunning pieces that screamed seedy jazz club: swinging-hip grooves, rich harmonies and Barker's trumpet growling over the top. Now maybe I'm just partial to a bit of smut, but it was such moments of unified sleaze that rendered me that little bit hot under the collar."
