Launch party for the forthcoming Jazzman album The Greg Foat Group – ‘Dark Is The Sun’ (JMANCD/LP.041) – this is the debut release from British pianist/composer/arranger Greg Foat. The album is 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. 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.

DJ support from Dom Servini, Scrimshire and special guest Jazzman Gerald!!
