Stephen Godsall

We could fix everything (Jazz'halo)

Stephen Godsall has a growing reputation as composer/instrumentalist; his 2020 album “Atlantic Skies” was described as “inordinately enjoyable” with “beautiful resonating depths” by Sammy Stein in JazzViews Here he plays electric and acoustic nylon strung guitars and three tracks feature subtle use of jazz ukulele, sounding like a highly strung guitar with Celtic heritage The album fizzes with ideas; “Poetic off-licence” is a homage to the bard of Bolton, Hovis Presley “We could fix everything” is a fiery riposte to the climate crisis with haunting piccolo recalling Ennio Morricone “Don’t look down” urges listeners to “forget the future”.
