And In The Night-Time She Is There.
on 31 December 2014
This is a particularly fine album from Trish Clowes.
Very much in the realms of chamber jazz - all the more so for the addition of a string quartet for much of the album - this is an excellent showcase for both Clowes` writing and the aesthetic behind the music; there is a palpable nocturnal element to the venture, a quiet, meditative atmosphere to the album overall. Clowes smokily dark tenor sound is nicely complimented by Chris Montague`s guitar and the sympathetic support of bass, drums and her fellow guest musicians who augment the group.
Clowes has an interesting, sometimes oblique approach to her soloing; an undemonstrative improviser, she rather bucks the trend for post-bop, Coltrane-style expansive melodic lines; she appears to play mainly within the middle register of the instrument with a keen harmonic sensibility; it`s an interesting sound and approach.
Overall, this is an album of thoughtful, intelligent and well-conceived music making, well worth getting acquainted with.
Check out the music samples if they are available to see if it appeals to you.
