OCTOBER TOUR LIAM NOBLE AND JULIAN ARGUELLES DOUBLE BILL

 

 2006-10-06 19:52:12

This tour will promote two albums – Liam Noble’s Romance Amongst the Fishes (SRCD13-2), released on Basho Records and launched at the Purcell Room in London at the 2005 London Jazz Festival, and Julian Arguelles’s Partita (SRCD 17-2) released this autumn.

Both albums were recorded in New York and continue a constant theme at Basho of collaborations between British and North American players. Liam Noble’s Romance Among the Fishes, recorded in August 2004 (with Phil Robson, Drew Gress and Tom Rainey), came out of a commission for the 2004 Cheltenham Jazz Festival. The music demonstrates Liam Noble’s highly original approach to composition. Tom Rainey’s highly original percussive style and Drew Gress’s virtuosic and responsive bass playing were Liam’s inspiration for the work. With his long-term associate guitarist Phil Robson, whose versatility complements Liam’s inventiveness as an improvising pianist, the quartet have created pieces that demonstrate a strong musical empathy between players whose backgrounds and influences are very diverse. The music has developed a style and energy of its own since its original airing at the Cheltenham Festival where John Fordham described it in the following way:
'The sharp-end American bass/drums duo of New York downtowners Drew Gress and Tom Rainey were mixed into another cocktail on Monday, playing the music of the British pianist Liam Noble, with Phil Robson on guitar...the percussively algebraic finale Jitters brought inventive collective jittering of a clarity, focus and density that sounded like the music of regular partners'. John Fordham, The Guardian
