The Complete Diary Of A Plastic Box

"The Things I See" (SJPCD168)

The recording is a testament to Holdsworth's writing and to Husband's not inconsiderable skills as a pianist as he refashions ten of Holdsworth's compositions...Maybe it's because Holdsworth is so careful at crafting his tunes that people can't see past the detailed arrangements to the broader potential of the material, but Husband clearly does, and hopefully The Things I See will encourage others to do the same.

John Kelman, All About Jazz (November 2004)


...what we have is a pianist interpreting music originally produced by an avant-garde guitarist and the result is something that works magnificently...It is music that takes the listener on a voyage, one that can have unexpected twists yet at the same time is always safe and interesting.

"The Complete Diary Of A Plastic Box" (SJPCD252)

…sounds like what would happen if avant gard pioneer Edward Varese decided to make an album of poly-rhythmic improvisational jazz fusion vignettes…Husband's unique electronic instrumental e-jazz makes for a wildly adventurous, yet completely captivating 'soundtrack' experience.

…the set is highly evocative, an exploration of mood-inducing music that feels cohesive, even though it's quite diverse…one which jazz fans in particular will find fascinating.

Interesting fluid instrumentals presented with precise attention to detail…

With a strong sense of melody, groove and texture…a welcome return of an album that should have received more attention at the time…

Musically the album is a collection of small motifs...it can come across as disjointed but taken in it entirety I'd have to say I like it...
