9/10 Phone Customer review, 17th September 2014
This is a comprehensive look back at the work of PE Hewitt, put together not as a comp, rather collecting the three private press albums and giving them a new lease of life. I bought the cd version as whilst I'm a vinyl buyer the vinyl version was a hefty investment. Having owned the cd version some time the vinyl version now resides in my collection. That should be recommendation enough. This is a beautiful collection of soulful, spiritual jazz. Some instrumental, some vocal all of them with a sense of someone working with a group of likeminded people on a labour of love.
There is an honesty in these recordings, this music was made not due to a desire for fame, fortune or a chance to appear in Heat. This is music for the sake of playing, for the sake of creating, because of the need to just express. And that is why music can be so great, when it is someones passion, that then speaks to the listener. The 3 albums, Jawbones, Since Washington and Winter Winds recorded between 1968 to 1970 are a blend of soul jazz, free jazz, even a bit of funk. 24 tracks from Ihadmyheadoverthechickensouppot to the lovely vical of The Winterwind, this is a treat.
On reflection even the vinyl version seems a bargain. Lovely stuff.
