Zespół ze wschodniego wybrzeża Anglii raczej unika solówek. Progresywny minimalizm, w którym w rożnych numerach wątki się powtarzają, a rytm jest żwawy i wciąga. W duchu późnego Terry'ego Rileya.
Percussion, sax and piano trio Mammal Hands have long been a unique proposition within British jazz, with their increasing use of both Indian Tabla rhythms and electronic sounds - as well as a fondness for Steve Reich/Terry Riley style minimalism - making their albums especially hard to pigeonhole. Captured Spirits, the Norwich-based combo's fourth studio set, keeps up this tradition. While rooted in the twinkling piano motifs and seductive, ear-pleasing saxophone solos of jazz, percussionist Jesse Barrett's rhythms are particularly bold and forthright, drawing just as much from contemporary dancefloor grooves and club-ready jazz-funk as more traditional jazz fare. It's an especially addictive combination and one that makes Captured Spirits a gorgeous and lively listen.
