Matt Owens’ The Aviators’ Ball released to great reviews

Matt Owens’ debut album The Aviators’ Ball is out this week on All Made Up and has attracted wonderful reviews.

“The Aviators’ Ball is the perfect soundtrack to a film not yet realised, and one of the most gorgeous albums you’ll hear this year.” Dom Servini, Echoes Magazine

“the genuineness of its eclectic, yesteryear approach, the persuasive strength of its endearingly tuneful hooks and arrangements make it utterly irresistible – certainly a delightful musical diversion.” Adrian Pallant, AP reviews

“An album to cherish. Absolutely wonderful.” Phil Barnes, All About Jazz

“Owens’ début is an album to be proud of, a genre straddling record that manages to create its own uniquely distinctive sound world, evocative of both a century ago and now.” Ian Mann, thejazzmann.com

“The Aviators’ Ball is sheer delight…truly one of “those” albums. The kind of album which starts the dreamer dreaming and invites the listener to lose themselves in a delightfully unique world created by people who truly believe in the magic of music and its transformative qualities.” Becca Horne, Jazz In Europe

“Charming…the real stand-out track for me is the traditional Scots ballad Black Is The Colour. Worth the price of the album for this piece alone!” Peter Bacon, Thejazzbreakfast.com

“What a beautiful album.” Dave Sumner, Bird Is The Worm (album of the week)
