About the album
Liam Noble returns with his first solo recording in 20 years. Liam has worked in a vast range of contexts, including as a sideman in award winning projects with Julian Siegel, Christine Tobin and Mark Lockheart and in a transatlantic ensemble with Zhenya Strigalev (which has included Eric Harland, Ambrose Akinmusire, Greg Hutchinson and Larry Grenadier). He has also collaborated in free improvisation projects such as Sleepthief (with Tom Rainey and Ingrid Laubrock), and performed in ensembles with Peter Evans, Mary Halverson, Mat Manieri and Okkyung Lee. It now feels like the right time to strike out alone again.
Robert Shore, Jazzwise
'...the project...sees Noble recording alone for the first time in 20 years and applying his significant talents to a series of standards and improvisations...'
London Jazz News
Noble’s first solo record for 20 years is virtuosic and inventively programmed, yet also reflective and elegant. We’re lucky to listen in on this dialogue; hopefully, the imaginary macaw won’t mind.
