Paula Gardiner’s presence on the Welsh Jazz scene has been an inspiring one for a long time. As well as heading up the Jazz course at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, Paula is the Honorary President of the Swansea-based organisation, Women in Jazz. In fact, Paula has been so active around the region that it is surprising that she has yet to achieve the wider recognition in Britain and Europe that she so richly deserves. Hot Lament, Paula’s third CD under her own name will change all that.

Featuring Paula on double bass, guitar and flute alongside regular trio partners saxophonist Lee Goodall and drummer Mark O’Connor, Hot Lament is an album of delightful contrasts. One of Britain’s most lyrical and melodic bass players, Paula Gardiner is also an accomplished classical guitarist and flautist. Hot Lament is a trio record and one that in its range shows up the limitations of many other such ventures. There’s an authority and maturity of vision here that surpasses so much that calls itself Modern Jazz. If there’s a track that defines Hot Lament, it is Beneath Rioja Skies – vibrant and forceful, it’s a sheer masterclass in the Art of the Trio. With Hot Lament, Paula Gardiner is no longer a Welsh-kept secret.
