Shetland Stories, IDeeJazz Review

Yesterday, Helilaine.ee published Andres' "memoirs" of the Shetland trip that produced "Live In Lerwick". Read all about it here: in English and in Estonian!

Also yesterday, the Sirp weekly printed yet another review of IDeeJazz festival, which featured Roots & Terep - this time by Avo Kartul: "Guitarist Andres Roots represents a fairly rare style of blues playing, his very good slide technique complimented by great chording and skillfully executed basslines, played simultaneously... Drummer Raul Terep, coming from a rock and orchestral background, provided expert backing, and thus the audience was treated to a stylistically rather varied set of (not just) blues."

IDeeJazz Festival Reviews

"The uncompromising king of Estonian blues Andres Roots and rhythm master Raul Terep... The most mystifying thing about these blues brothers was the fact that the sound made with just drums and one guitar filled the stage more powerfully than your average rock band. "To squeeze such a convincing bass out of that small a guitar - that takes big tone and years of practice, really superb," noted the legendary Tartu luthier and music man Halvo, who also pointed out the collective's utmost musicality and dynamics."
- Kristofer Soop, IDeeJazz.ee

"They possess the knack for keeping this seemingly simple and clear music interesting even upon repeated listening." 
- Priit Pajusalu, Tartu Postimees

"Adding Roots to a festival line-up can never be a bad decision." 
 - Martin Laine, Helilaine.ee
