Huw Warren Hundreds of Things a Boy Can Make

Huw has already proved himself a richly melodic, unpredictably minimalist and infectiously rhythmic composer besides being a thrillingly lyrical improviser whose highly unique pan-diversity is regarded highly across the often exclusive worlds of jazz, classical, and folk. His recent other work extends to being musical director/pianist for leasing contemporary folk diva June Tabor for well over a decade, as well as being a co-leader of jazz quartet Perfect Houseplants. A new commission for the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and choir will be premiered in October 2004. He has also played regularly with Billy Jenkins and The Fun Horns (with 2 CDs on Babel) and vocalist Christine Tobin. Huw has recently appeared on Radio 3's In Tune presenting versions of songs from the new album.

The new album Hundreds of Things a Boy Can Make evokes the wonders of boyhood discovery in the kit-building pursuits that were illustrated in the pre-Playstation era of the Boys World Annual. This is reflected in Huw's compositions' intriguing collage-like form of which NY violinist Mark Feldman's passionate virtuosity is a compelling feature. Huw's compositions build a uniquely unadulterated interface between jazz improvisation, twentieth century classical and folk music. Huw has made his name over the past decade as one of the most sensitive and aware musicians, easily able to straddle all musical styles. His first CD in his own name, Barrel Organ (Far From Home), was based on 1930s photos of urban and rural life, and a second for solo piano, based on heroes as diverse as Elizabethan composer John Dowland, Brazilian maverick Hermeto Pascoal and bebop supremo Charlie Parker, came out in June 2001.
