Welcome repress of this much praised slab of modern British jazz that draws on a deep trough of influences including library, film noir and Americana laced with new classical, minimalism, Jazz and Folk. UK Jazz Pianist Greg Foat and “The Bees” member and multi instrumentalist Warren Hampshire pool their considerable talents on an album that evades definition. ‘A Long Way Home’ is drenched in the atmosphere of a sweltering night sometime in 1976, ‘All Washed Up’ has the air of a surreal mystery while ‘How The Nights Can Fly’ has a spiritual vibe that simultaneously manages to stay superbly left field. ‘End Song’ couples a simple drum machine with soaring strings, the title track again uses the metronomic electronic beat to keep time against sparkling keys and mournful wind instruments. ‘The Solar Winds (and Cadenza)’ has a more tightly bound structure with those tinkling keys leading the way ahead of a low bass line and brushed drums. So much invention here. This truly is a quiet, modern masterpiece that demands your full attention. Don’t miss this.
