Artist: Denman Maroney
Label: Denman Maroney
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 28 March 2020

Denman Maroney new jazz-based album, Martingale, should find a welcome following in the jazz community. It's a little too freeform for my specific tastes, but there is a constant change to the mood and style of the songs.

The album opener, the titular 'Martingale', kicks the album off on the right note. It's light and engaging. However, this is followed by the rather slow and bland 'Curl'... And this pretty much sums up how I felt about the album. It seems to take one step forwards and two steps back.

It's good that the music is stylistically all over the place - you wouldn't want to get bored - it's just that I felt no connection to the music or understanding of the band's structure.
