Notes

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!
-RARE and FINE music heard only on Jazzman – all because WE DIG DEEPER!

Track durations are not present on the record.

The artwork is by Lindsay Todd and features the image of the beautiful Claudia Cardinale. Of the 500 there are only a few hand painted by Greg Foat: 20 Silver, 10 Gold and 5 Purple (extremely rare!)
