"Slinfold Live"

"The songs are brilliantly composed and arranged with deserving space made for improvisation, something they all excel at. These guys are all amazing young musicians, and you can see they, like us, are all absolutely loving it.

The enthusiastic reaction from the audience, a measure of how well they were received and a fitting way to appreciate a band destined for bigger things.

New London instrumental jazz band SLINFOLD are a joy to behold and leaving you wondering if what is being witnessed here, is bordering on genius"

"Slinfold at Brighton Buzz Magazine Launch"

"Modern jazz has a reputation of poorly contrived songs and overly fussy playing for the average punter, guilty of perhaps focusing on the technical instead of the audibly palatable. Slinfold plead not guilty to all charges... And rightfully so!

Fluid, modern, dance driven fusion-jazz tracks which are seasoned with melodic solos and breaks make this band a must see. Slinfold are showing the best of what the new age of young musicians are doing, to try and ditch the preconceptions of any that snore or screech with the mention of jazz. A fantastically talented band which know how to party and make everyone else enjoy there's.

Simon Davies, Chief editor for Buzz Brighton Magazine"

Mix funky beats, intricate Jazzy melodies, and a groovy R'n'B backbone and the result is Slinfold, a collection of UK's finest young talents. The band draws from a vast array of different influences; Herbie Hancock, D'angelo, and George Benson are to name a few. Slinfold combines brilliantly innovative composition with superb improvisation. While pushing the boundaries of modern music, you'll still find yourself wistling the tunes days after the gig!

The bands memebers each contribute a unique character and playing style. This was pivotal when forming the band in the summer of 2009. This has helped Slinfold develope such contrasting compostions and solo styles.
