The Teak Project is a mesmerizing modern-day incarnation of Indo-Jazz Fusions director John Mayer’s work, featuring none other than his own son, Jonathan Mayer, a virtuoso sitar player. He is joined by Justin Quinn on guitar and Neil Craig on tabla for an album rich in hypnotic jazz improvisations. Their musical influences range from British folk to Indian classical to modern jazz.

 

      ****

The Guardian 


 “The devilish complexity of the music does nothing to detract from its sweetness and serenity… The Teak Project offers a near-perfect realisation of indo-jazz yet hints at further expansion…” ****

 
Manchester Evening News

“An outstanding debut.”    ****

Jazzwise Magazine 


 “If there is a certain awkwardness in the way the Eastern and Western elements come together, this quality is entirely absent from the efforts of Mayer’s sitar-playing son, Jonathan. While his Teak Project with guitarist Justin Quinn and tabla player Neil Craig doesn’t break any new ground, they have created an understated and highly listenable blend of Indian classical, folk and jazz elements which shows how far the fusion phenomenon has come in 40 years.” 

 
The Daily Telegraph

“What’s so attractive about the seven original compositions is the relaxed approach of the players and the easy interplay of sitar and guitar.” 

The Independent

 

 "At last - an East-meets-West to be proud of ...If you are looking for something a little different, but with a sound world that hints at just the right amount of Indian and European influence then this CD is definitely worth a listen.” ****

 
Songlines Magazine

“British folk, Indian classical and jazz create a rich brew.” ****
