Standards Vol III by National Jazz Trio Of Scotland

8/10 Mike 26 June 2014
Bill Wells and his National Jazz Trio of Scotland are back with another collection of "Standards" here. As always the first thing they have to assert is that they are not a trio and they don't play jazz. Wells plays samples and three girls with lovely soft Scottish-accented voices, Aby Vulliamy, Kate Sugden and Lorna Gilfedder, sing delicate pop songs around them.   It's beautiful and beguiling stuff, the songs are constructed from tiny looped details from synths and classical instruments which form cautious, unsteady frameworks upon which the breathy vocals teeter pensively. The boldest and most confident-sounding moments tend to be when the vocals are pushed to the fore, particularly the a capella girl group wistfulness of 'With Me Tonight'. Wells's contributions are purposefully skeletal, even in the slinky bossa nova of 'Surprising Word' there's a spacious and deliberate feel to his arrangements. Gentle, strange and quite likeable.
