Dice Factory review, Financial Times

From the Financial Times, 8 December 2012

The four members of Dice Factory deliver the choppy rhythms, odd juxtapositions and melange of styles that characterise London’s well-schooled and well-drilled experimental jazz scene. Here, they investigate the tension between organisation and chaos – their name references Luke Rhinehart’s novel The Dice Man – with angular rhythms, controlled improv and strong melodies for saxophonist Tom Challenger. Pianist George Fogel has a broad palette and an impressive range of mood. Tom Farmer and Jon Scott are a tight and expansive rhythm team.
