Icaros - Dominic J Marshall Trio - F-IRECD62 (2012)
Following their striking debut “the Oneness”, the trio’s second album, “ICAROS”, comprises solely of British jazz pianist Dominic Marshall's original compositions, and the collective improvisations that spring forth from them.
The album has so many elements in it; groove, improvisation, romance... Full of unexpected twists and turns and build-ups and releases, that completes the performance, making a low-key melody into something much more. ICAROS brings the true feeling of jazz into action and captures the listener with its gently swinging mood. All in all a very musical walk into the future, but with deference to the roots of the music.

"...a considerable pianistic talent... pleasingly self-absorbed but consistently communicative and inventive piano solos that really impress... featuring an intense, fiercely interactive trio." (Chris Parker - LondonJazz)
"Marshall is a budding talent with a fertile mind and displays a youthful energy as well as a darker, deeper side." (Don Albert - Downbeat)
"A wonderfully fresh-sounding trio [Tyratarantis] of young musicians who play so easily you lose sight of the technical accomplishments of all the band members and just dig the feel... they communicate great joy. I think no-one's told them yet that life's supposed to be difficult!" - (John Law)
"He plays with real beauty and sensitivity and his compositions are really very imaginative. Echoes of EST." (Chris Gumbley)
