I am so pleased to announce a little musical light (?) during COVID-19 lockdown! One of the bands I play in has just released an album. The band is the trio hymn, in an augmented line-up:
- Chris Dowding trumpet, loops, keyboard, composition
- Dave Ross percussion, electronics
- me double bass
- PLUS Sylvia Hallett violin, bicycle wheel
- AND Graham Dunning turntables.
The album is called This Ghostly Aura. It consists of a composition by Chris, in several parts, interwoven with improvisations, both melodic and free. It was recorded live in Norwich at a concert in 2019. You can hear it by clicking below, and you can buy and download it (supporting musicians during lockdown) for only £5.
