You will not find many others this year that mix lyrical ingenuity with instrumental brilliance in such a passionate display.
Performed with freshness, humor and verve. So vivid that you can almost hear the late-night clink of ice cubes. Rosh gets down to basics on his fourth album and the results are irresistible. The unassuming blend of blues, rock and trad jazz displays profound love, respect and understanding of the genres. With Rosh's canny vocals and clever lyrics, backed by impressive instrumentation, "Fundamental" is fabulously funky fun.
