Arrietty Volume II
Jazz music played on harmonica with rhythm section. The second installment in the recordings of Philip's collective "Arrietty".
In this EP, Philip moves into jazz territory. Here we see the full lineup of piano, bass and drums with harmonica taking on a collection of standards both common and less common. The EP contains well known standards Body and Soul (Johnny Green original) and Blues March (Benny Golson original), yet also features a special 10 minute track of complete improvisation. For this Philip did not rehearse or even mention that it was to be recorded and proposed this idea to the group on the day of the recording itself. Alongside these are more funk based numbers Hottentot (John Scofield original) and Red Clay (Freddie Hubbard original). These are presented with So Tender (Keith Jarret/Airto Moreira original) and New York Minute (Don Henly arr. Herbie Hancock).
There are various styles on this EP, and this represents an exploration of different feels and approaches from both a harmonica perspective and a musical perspective.
This EP like the previous one is a presentation of Philip and the group, and will be the first of many volumes charting Philip's exploration into various soundworlds.
