Product description

Product Description

Following quickly on from the Duo Art release Reverie at Schloss Elmau, that saw Gwilym paired with Russian pianist Yuri Goloubev, the Welsh pianist returns with a more expansive work, again featuring Goloubev and with Martin France at the drums. Gwilym's latest project features music in that space between classical and jazz where he feels most comfortable. The album consists of two works: "Move!" - a suite of three movements linked by solo piano interludes, for jazz quartet with the City of London Sinfonia - and "Simple Tales" - a more straightforward collection of tunes, originally written as a commission for Classical piano trio and featuring Thomas Gould on violin and Will Schofield on cello, here augmented with bass and drums.


Simcock s score expertly expands his florid and rhythmic piano style to the larger canvas without straying too far from diatonic principles. --Financial Times

'elegantly composed' --Jazzwise

4 STARS **** Pianist/composer Gwilym Simcock previewed the second of these two suites Simple Tales, for a quintet featuring violin, cello and jazz trio in London in January, and its intricate classical contrapuntalisms and diverse themes delivered with a punchy jazz freedom were impressive then, and are all the more so here. Thomas Gould is once again the violinist, joining cellist Will Schofield, bassist Yuri Goloubev and drummer Martin France on themes that join romantic yearnings, percussive twisters reminiscent of Chick Corea's Spain, and joyous barn-dancing knees-ups. The suite Move! (for jazz quartet and chamber orchestra) sounds more like jazz-inflected classical music. But if its tight structure, melodic latticework and elegantly harmonised orchestration might appear to evict jazz, the chords and brass parts sometimes suggest Kenny Wheeler, while Simcock's solo-piano interludes are contrastingly loose and abstract, and the stridently marching Industrial, with its clamouring horns and funky-Jarrett piano break, bustles with spontaneous life. John Fordham --The Guardian, Thursday 23 May 2014
