A Consequence in Three Parts, Johnny Hunter Quartet’s third album and first featuring an updated personnel, continues the explorations of interplay between composition and improvisation; from the freer and more textural sounds to the hard-swinging grooves that the quartet has become renowned for across previous albums and live tours.

“A Consequence in Three Parts confirms Hunter’s qualities as a composer but also provides ample opportunity for plenty of adventurous improvisation within the written framework. In South, Hanslip and Bennett he has three outstanding musicians who are capable of bringing his ideas to full fruition. Meanwhile Hunter himself is an inventive and imaginative drummer with a style that is very much his own.” – The Jazz Mann

“Hard-grooving Jazz that’s filtered through the investigation of the more unfamiliar” – Jazzwise

“Hunter rides the kit with commanding joi de vivre”, “also a composer of considerable depth.” – The Wire
