Acoustic Ladyland: Living With a Tiger

The latest from Acoustic Ladyland garners a review.

A claim to be London’s preeminent jazz/punk band may be met with derision in some quarters – until, that is, you hear the work of Acoustic Ladyland. Their brand of taught, energetic jazz has taken the city by storm – recognised by such luminaries as Ornette Coleman who asked them to play at the recent Meltdown Festival on the South Bank.

Now on their fourth album – following debut Camouflage in 2004 and subsequent Last Chance Disco and Skinny Grin – the group appears poised on the verge of wider exposure – bringing to the mainstream a secret the insular jazz world has long cherished.
