There are times here on this very fine solo album from pianist Ivo Neame recorded in Southampton's Turner Sims hall in 2020 that recall solo Django Bates from the 1990s, particularly Autumn Fires (And Green Shoots). There is the same delicate way of unpeeling a tune, a certain puckish flair and even a tender romanticism built in. Neame, best known for his work with Phronesis, dissects Bach, draws a little on Rachmaninov, covers a David Bowie piece 'Soul Love' and matches Bill Frisell’s ‘Strange Meeting’ with 'Rag' - the Frisell ingredients certainly proving a strong highlight. Beautifully recorded - there's plenty here to return to time and time again. If you think you know what Neame can do already, think again.
