ALL ABOUT JAZZ

“Flashbacks is a sure contender for this year’s “best of” lists”
ALL ABOUT JAZZ

“McAll is partial to unleashing surprises himself, whether they be radical dynamic shifts – such as suddenly reducing a solo to the merest
trickle of notes against thrumming bass and whispered cymbal chatter – or just finding bewitchingly unexpected turns to take in developing
a melody. Masterful.”
SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

“Pianist Barney McAll’s imaginative compositions juxtaposed Cuban rhythmic raunch with moth’s wing delicacy”…

“Rosenwinkel also joined the Barney McAll for a beguiling program drawn from McAll’s new album, Flashbacks. The pianist’s specially
formed septet uncovered the grooves inside these multilayered tunes with a confidence normally reserved for a working band…’
THE AGE

Keeping up with the wealth of talent around the world is a challenge, but when it’s someone as talented and distinctive as Australian pianist Barney McAll, it’s well worth the effort….
-All About Jazz

Since moving from Australia to NYC in 1997, pianist/composer Barney McAll has created an impressive resume that includes work with Gary Bartz, Billy Harper, Maceo Parker, Josh Roseman, and David Binney. It’s not surprising that Flashbacks, his fifth recording as a leader, emanates a globalist awareness with contemporary urban storytelling….
-Mark F Turner for All About Jazz

Rosenwinkel also joined the Barney McAll 7 for a beguiling program
drawn from McAll’s new album, Flashbacks. The pianist’s specially

-The Age

Flashbacks is a masterful achievement that reveals an engaging verve, and sophisticated yet earthy compositions. McAll’s lucid music exhibits an artist working at the top of his game with assurance, imagination, and an impressive combination of melodic and rhythmic aptitude.
-Audiophile Audition

McAll engineers a string of aural portraitures that do indeed, go straight to the heart, in various colors and forms.Exuberantly recommended…
-Jazz Review

This is one of those discs where you think you know what you’ll get and then something unexpected happens. A great deal of time and work went into this so I hope that some folks get a chance to hear this modest gem.
-Downtown Music Gallery

‘…Pianist Barney McAll’s imaginative compositions juxtaposed Cuban rhythmic raunch with moth’s wing delicacy. Trombonist Shannon Barnett sundered the music in one solo, her sound as big as a storm cloud. McAll’s star guitarist, Kurt Rosenwinkel, also performed alone in a cathedral, his gentle, melodic haze warming the very bricks..’.
