In 1995 Andrea was nominated for the BBC jazz
awards following the success of her second CD. Cementing Andrea's
reputation as a risk-taking eclectic composer, "Lunar Spell"
features some of the most powerful improvisors on the UK scene;
including Mornington Lockett (of Jim Mullen,
Jimmy Smith, Ronnie Scott Sextet, Stan Tracey etc.) and
Phil Robson (of Partisans, Django Bates, Chris Tobin,
John Patton, Tim Garland, BBC Big Band etc.).
"As her previous CD showed, Andrea Vicari
is a composer of formidable range. She moves easily from complex
ear-tricking rhythmic devices to a kind of pastoral lyricism
while remaining recognisably herself...the variety of texture
and colour (the band) are able to draw from this standard line-up
is truly remarkable"
