Great playing, ade, Rory and Alex. It’s great to hear a real group with a concept, a sound and a terrific style instead of just a bunch of guys thrown together. I enjoyed it immensely!

ade and Chelsea are remarkably talented modern jazz exponents. Their original material is vibrant, wonderfully cohesive, so complex and full of interest for this listener.

I first came across ade ishs at my performance workshops at Guildford Lane Gallery in 2011. I was so impressed by his musicianship and expressive tonal quality at the keyboard. Since that time I have become a great admirer of his approach and desire to succeed as a contemporary jazz pianist.

Such musicality, space, and delicate detail. Highly recommended.

This is a sensational album — I have been playing it constantly. If you love sparkling, “golden” uplifting and melodic jazz with cool rhythms and riffs, you’ll love this.

I really like Acceptance… very nice tune and composition. It resonates deeply with me. I think I will keep listening to this for a while…
Just two words: Salute and Respect!

One of the best sets I heard [at Grampians Jazz Festival 2013] was The ishs/Allen Project’s.
