Partisans have been thrilling audiences since its formation in 1996,with its tightly knit themes and a great freedom coming from years of playing together.
'This foursome are often cited as godfathers of the ferocious “post-jazz” groups. - Times****
...tricky zigzagging heads are played with flawless attack, and the quartet's trademark of seamless idiom and time-shifting within each piece operates with a gleeful tautness. - Guardian****
Partisans present some of the most refreshing music I've heard in a long while, uncompromising, very well written and very well played. It demands serious attention. I hear in these players a sense of common purpose and resolve, and a strong command of a dialect uniquely suited to this music. It's heartening to hear music that looks to find its own particular place. - Steve Swallow
'It's bad, man' - Delfeayo Marsalis
'One of the most exciting all star experimental groups in Jazz today' - BBC Radio 3 Jazz Line Up
'Partisans were the highlight of the festival, jazz that makes you blink in its glare'- John Fordham, The Guardian, Cheltenham Jazz festival
