about

Paradise was Curlew's first release after Tom Cora and Pippin Barnett departed the group and leader and main composer George Cartwright took advantage of the changes to shake up the sound!

George Cartwright - saxes
Davey Williams - guitar
Chris Cochrane - guitar
Ann Rupel - bass
Samm Bennett - drums
with guest
Jim Spake - baritone sax

It still sounds completely like Curlew and also quite different than before. Davey and Chris' clashing (and exciting!) guitars give the band a Magic Band vibe at times.

"Curlew's new twin-guitar lineup has resulted in, perhaps, the most satisfying yet of recordings by this criminally unrecognized band ." – Henry Kaiser

"Curlew embodies a true Yankee hybrid of Mississippi mud and downtown pavement." – Wired

"The unironic, idiosyncratic mix of Latin, soul, funk, free music and jazz rock gives fusion a good name. George Cartwright has been nurturing Curlew since 1979 - he has one hell of a group on his hands." – The Wire

"Curlew is the best and most obstinately commited band to emerge from N.Y.'s Knitting Factory-based alternative music scene..." – Option
