“Although he first came to prominence on the jazz scene a half century ago, Ornette Coleman still scares people, but not Mark Lockett who has assembled a first rate quintet to interpret four of Ornette’s soulful melodies. Now and Then, Lockett’s third CD, also includes tunes by worthies such as Horace Silver, Thelonious Monk and the New York pianist Mark Cohen, whose music prior to this has been covered by no less than Joe Lovano and Dave Holland. Lockett has also contributed two of his own works to this appealing mix. Lockett follows in the footsteps of his countrymen like pianist Alan Broadbent, Mike Nock, and tenor sax player Roger Manins, and found success overseas. The leader of a popular Melbourne trio for more than five years now, Lockett is a tasteful time-keeper who clearly espouses the old but very valid notion that a drummer’s function in the band is to make everyone sound great, not constantly call attention to his own personal virtuosity. From beyond the grave, the drummers of old like Sid Catlett, Dave Tough and Art Blakey would surely be nodding with pleasure.”

“Australian jazz musicians collectively put out several dozen new CDs every year, most of them dominated by original tunes that may or may not make much of an impact on their listeners. In releasing an album of modern jazz standards, Mark and his colleagues have taken on perhaps a more demanding task – tell fresh, new stories within some old and familiar frameworks. As you’ll hear, they’ve succeeded… admirably.”

– Steve Robertson (Host of Jazz On Saturday on PBS-FM in Melbourne)

“This live recording is a wonderful example of the creative musical energy of Australian musicians and especially the younger generations who, while respecting the tradition of the older jazz players, are pushing into the future.”
