From Wire Magazine ~ Saxentric

Saxentric is Tenor’s latest collection, a dozen tracks on which he shows Prince-like ability to play and sing everything himself. The scale is often intimate, though not on “Full House”, where Tony Allen’s inspired shuffle anchors an Afrobeat percussion party. Likewise the drums of Ghana’s Ekow Alabi Savage and Iceland’s Helgi Svavar Helgason broaden the scope of “Cap De Creus” (Tenor on swirling synths and popcorn-ad backing vocals), and “Peaceful Maelstrom” (Tenor on electric harpsichord) Elsewhere it’s basically our Jimi doing the lot. – Clive Bell
