Album review: Gilad Atzmon

**** In Loving Memory Of America Enja Tip Toe TIP 888 850 2, £12.72

This strangely beguiling album is a homage to the America of the Israeli saxophonist and clarinettist Gilad Atzmon's early dreams, and the people who made him fall in love with jazz, especially Charlie Parker. Featuring a string quartet and some very stylish arrangements, the CD – a mix of standards and original compositions – is almost like a suite, with one track leading into the next. Sumptuous strings play alongside a funky Fender Rhodes, notably on 'What Is This Thing Called Love'.
