OUT NOW... The Greg Foat Group 10" EP
Taken from the forthcoming Jazzman album (The Greg Foat Group - JMANCD/LP.041), 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.
• Debut recording by outstanding UK jazz pianist, composer and arranger
• Hand-printed, hand-stamped and hand-numbered 10” vinyl
• Limited to 500 copies only
• Non-contemporary jazz recorded in Sweden
• Watch out for the album ‘Dark is the Sun’ coming soon!
