Seeing Sky reviewed by Ants Neeme

Deeply personal & introspective, these fragile & exquisite improvisations will captivate the listener. Aggressive & jagged devices so often used purely for effect in solo improvised piano recordings are happily absent from John Bostock’s sparse yet gentle melodies with the pianist choosing instead to employ thoughtful harmonic & rhythmic development. The length of each track perfectly complements it’s essence without resorting to the pointless meandering so often found in this genre. “Point of Departure”, “Swan Song” & the improvisation around Jimmy Van Heusen’s “Here’s That Rainy Day” are stand-out tracks in an impressive album worthy of being in the collection of all music lovers.
