Since the release of the band’s debut album ‘Hidden’ in February 2007, Curios have made a striking impact on the UK jazz scene. Hailed as ‘triumphant’ in MOJO, ‘spellbinding’ in the Independent, ‘dazzling’ in Jazz UK and ‘pioneering’ in Musician magazine, the album was nominated in the BBC Jazz Awards, and reached the top 5 in both the HMV and the Radio 3 Jazz Charts. Curios completed a nationwide tour to rave reviews in the spring, and were invited to record a live session for Jazz On 3, which aired shortly afterwards. They were the first band to appear at the newly refurbished Royal Festival Hall in June, and were later featured on the Culture Show. This was followed by a large article and cover photo of the band in the summer edition of Jazz UK.
