On The Go (Extended Edition ) – Gondwana, 2016 GONDLP005 (Orig 2011 CD GONDCD005)

This album won Gilles Peterson’s Jazz LP of the Year in 2012. The featured cut is the opening track, but don’t be fooled by the energy level. Halsall flexes his muscles on everything from the aforementioned burners, to spiritual jazz influenced pieces, to moody ballads ala pre-Weather Report Wayne Shorter. Halsall assembled four of the UK’s strongest players to help see his vision to fruition. Everything they attempt, they accomplish and then some. On The Go is available for purchase directly from the artist along with several other titles at
