Frame of Reference

by Sean Foran

supported by
Ed Buckley
Ed Buckley thumbnail
Ed Buckley This is a set of lyrical jazz pieces presented by a quintet led by the pianist of Trichotomy. It breaks no new ground, as such; but is a very well played set of quite pleasant compositions. My only quibble is some occasional distortion evident at either end of the sound envelope on some tracks. Someone tweaked something a bit too much. A minor complaint.

"Richly nuanced, multi faceted writing and highly skilled playing. One of the most consistently beautiful albums that I've heard all year" - thejazzmann.com

"plenty of ingenuity in their shape and a logic to the way the melodies unfold and resolve themselves via a few twists and turns and that exquisite sense of melody that Foran manages to conjure time and time again throughout the eight excellent tracks" - marlbank.net
