BBC Music Magazine Dec 2021

“It’s not easy to get people’s attention when mainstream jazz is your chosen metier. But rising multi-reeds star Hannah Horton’s convivial sound is turning heads in London. Her latest album Inside Out, is a tight-but-loose affair, Horton leading a relaxed quartet through a mix of well-chosen standards and catchy original pieces. ’Keep Walking’ is a jaunty piece that hums along, while Mary Poppins’s ‘Feed The Birds’ is given the Sonny Rollins treatment. But Horton’s beautiful reading of Jimmy Rowles’s wistful ‘The Peacocks’ and her take on Miles Davis’s ‘Nardis’ reveal a deeper dimension to her art. Sidemen John Crawford (piano), Rob Statham (bass) and Nic France (drums) are on the money, while singer Ian Shaw is a welcome guest. ” **** BBC Music Magazine- Garry Booth on Inside Out (new album) Dec 2021
