Taken from the forthcoming Jazzman album (The Greg Foat Group - JMANCD/LP041), this is the debut release from British pianist/composer/arranger Greg Foat. The 3 track 10" vinyl EP contains an intriguing blend of non-contemporary jazz sounds with classic scoring techniques, utilizing an exotic array of unorthodox instrumentation including harpsichord, tubular bells and a 15 piece choir. Recorded 100% analogue in Sweden - no computerised jiggery pokery here! With musical influence from such luminaries as Bruno Nicolai, Michel Legrand and Serge Gainsbourg as well as a firm nod towards UK jazzmen Michael Garrick, Keith Mansfield and Alan Hawkshaw, the result is highly-listenable, enduring and fulfilling for those who like real music played with real instruments.
Hand-printed, hand-stamped and hand-numbered 10" vinyl, limited to 500 copies only!
