When a funk and soul guitarist like Hugh Gledhill is featuring a personnel on his debut record like the one you will find on "Big Dinosaur Mouth", you know it's gonna be great. He's already made a name for himself in the "Jezebel Sextet" and "The James Taylor Quartet" and is now presenting 9 original compositions with the support of singer Mudibu, The Killer Horns and Seamus Beaghan on Hammond.
Right from the start you can hear Gledhill's funky and versatile guitar skills but it doesn't stop there. The songwriting on this album, on the vocal tracks as on the instrumental ones, is what really stands out. Every song has a clear structure and an incredible groove. Musicians like Seamus Beaghan and The Killer Horns put a stunning dynamic in the sound of this record and Mudibu's vocals are the perfect fit for this instrumental ensemble that couldn't provide any better background. The vocal tracks feature a very smooth and soothing mood like you can hear it on "Don't Rush" or "Under Your Eyes" whereas some instrumental tracks like "Get Out" got everything it takes to be an uptempo funkbomb.
You can stream several tracks on Soundcloud.
