Editorial Reviews

E.S.T. on steroids, with the attitude of Motörhead this is jazz for Radiohead fans! Neil Cowley forged his piano-playing career with the Brand New Heavies and Zero 7. He is featured on Adele's hit Hometown Glory, and performs extensively on her multi-platinum album 21. The Neil Cowley Trio is the UK's premier contemporary jazz trio. Described by Cowley as music for the heart and feet, Radio Silence
shifts effortlessly between moments of poetic grace, rip-roaring riffs, and
Chaplinesque ditties.

Format: MP3 Music
The Neil Cowley Trio is one of the more completely satisfying jazz ensembles to come down the pike in a while. They play as with one united voice, so closely do they communicate during each of the tracks on this CD. The captain apparently is the man of the title - Neil Cowley is a British born pianist who dedicated his youth and formative years to classical piano, training at the Royal Academy and even performing a Shostakovich piano concerto in London's Queen Elizabeth Hall. All of his classical training shows in his impeccable technique and creativity. Now he has successfully joined with Richard Sadler, bass and Evan Jenkins, drums and the result is an exceptional and quite popular crossover as the trio is now one of the most celebrated in the UK.

RADIO SILENCE is a terrific name that conjures all manner of memories for the listener. The variations in moods in the ten tracks vary from the raucous to the sublime: the track 'Portal' is simply beautiful music that highlights the passion of Neil Cowley. But the occasional 'old sound' this group brings to this recording is more than balanced by the wickedly creative other tracks. These men are experts in their field and their relationship musically is always in evidence. Watch this album fly! Grady Harp, October 11

I have other tracks of Crowley's music and enjoy them for driving and listening. This Amazon exclusive was a good deal and I am glad I took up the offer. This is not the really serious jazz (my term) of folks like Miles, but it is good, and a bit light, as noted, great driving music. So I am a happy camper.

Format: Audio CD
"Radio Silence" by the Neil Cowley Trio has been a jazz hit in Great Britain for at least a year, but was just recently given a full release in the US (11/11) on the Naim Jazz Records label. Sometimes brash, and sometimes graceful and elegant, pianist Cowley brings an extensive background in classical, pop, rock, and jazz to the Trio which also includes Richard Sadler on bass and Evan Jenkins on drums. As a child, Cowley studied classical music at the Royal Academy and performed a Shostakovich concerto to a full house at London's Queen Elizabeth Hall at the age of 10. He went on to perform with Brand New Heavies and Zero 7 before being hired to record with Adele on both of her hit albums. Radio Silence is the third release by the Trio, following "Loud! Louder! Stop!" and "Displaced." Cowley himself describes this as "music for the heart and feet," which sums it up rather succinctly. The nine tracks are varied in mood and intensity, giving a good indication of what this Trio is capable of.

"Radio Silence" begins with "Monoface," a piece that starts out very quietly and mysteriously until the drums lead into a full-tilt explosion of sound. As the piece evolves, it brings in subtle themes that weave into the prog rock-like main theme, effortlessly going from very hot to cool and breezy and back to smokin'. The title track, my favorite, begins gently, in something of a ballad style, leaving open spaces between some of the notes and creating a calm, easy mood. At the halfway point, the rhythm picks up a bit and the piece gradually intensifies to a peak and then calms back down to the beautiful main theme. "Vice Skating" has a dark intensity that can be mesmerizing. "A French Lesson" is one of the shorter pieces, and is playful and lighthearted.

Incredibly creative jazz that inspires and moves you. The piano and the composition caught my attention almost two years after this album was released but after hearing it on the radio, I just had to have it!
