National Jazz Trio Of Scotland
Standards Vol. V

National Jazz Trio Of Scotland, in case you weren’t aware, are of course no such thing, being instead Bill Wells and collaborators. Standards Vol. V makes great use of Gerard Black’s tenor vocals. Some of the selections are true Standards (something from Fiddler On The Roof, a Scots ballad and a song from Shakespeare), and some are original. All are lush. Released by Karaoke Kalk.

The Sensory Illusions
The Sensory Illusions

The Sensory Illusions are Bill Wells and tuba genius Danielle Price. Both the songs, which vary from jazz to folk and  more, and the name came to Wells in a dream. Wells has had a long and illustrious career, never content to settle. Price meanwhile has played with Mats Gustafson, Ntshuks Bonga and more.

Remixes For Seksound

The Seksound label gets parts of its catalogue reworked by the legend Bill Wells, who applies his particular approach to ‘remixing’. With material put together over the last fourteen years, this compilation release includes originals by Imandra Lake and Pia Fraus, given new arrangements, total reworkings, and considerate tweaks. Released by Seksound.

National Jazz Trio Of Scotland
Standards Vol. IV

The National Jazz Trio of Scotland are the collective led by heavily bearded composer Bill Wells. Thing is they are neither a trio nor play jazz. However they are from Scotland so that bit is correct and the album does contain moments of jazz amidst its outsider pop and modern composition. As well as ten Bill Wells originals there is a collaboration with Aidan Moffat and a cover version of fellow eccentric Scot Richard Youngs.

Bill Wells & Friends
Nursery Rhymes

Bill Wells’ new record Nursery Rhymes is very accurately named: these are indeed versions of infinitely familiar traditional nursery rhymes. But these versions are anything but familiar, with musicians including Yo La Tengo, Greg Saunier of Deerhoof, Isobel Campbell, Annette Peacock… Fresh and remarkable sounding! LP comes with a bonus 7”, on Karaoke Kalk.

Aidan Moffat & Bill Wells
DILF_77 Would Like To Talk

I’ll bet you don’t own a record titled anything even close to this. Aidan Moffat & Bill Wells’ new work, DILF_77 Would Like To Chat is a mini-album of their excellent collaboration, Moffat’s gruff poetics over Wells’ chamber orchestration. The title track is all about disco. CD EP, exclusive to independent shops, on Chemikal Underground.

Bill Wells & Aidan Moffat
Everything's Getting Older

It was battle of the beards as instrumentalist Bill Wells hooked up with Arab Strap's Aidan Moffat for this well regarded collaboration which netted the duo a tidy £20000 windfall by winning Scottish Album of the Year in 2011. Now you can re-live the album in which Wells distinctive but subtle neo-classical moves left space for Moffat's poetry and wordplay to truly come into its own away from the relative racket of his former band.
