BBC radio 3 in the form of the brilliant sarah walker played the 1st track of ‘...tied up with strings’ on 23/10/22 ,and this is what she said:

“…You might think that medieval music and jazz would make strange bedfellows but the pianist Steve Lodder creates a really successful blend on the first track of his album ‘Tied Up With Strings’. Now, Steve is a mighty virtuoso - so expect some real fireworks after the rather dour medieval opening; but what I really enjoy is the way he digs into that medieval harmonic strangeness and emphasises those notes that don’t belong in polite classical scales, adding plenty of his own wild harmonic imagination. Then, after an amazing fantasy, he returns us to the straight-faced medieval melody of the Retrové-Estampie”.
