MADE IN THE UK
IN SCOTLAND SHOWCASE
An organ trio that avoids the cliches of the format, each member draws out surprising sounds and composes material drawing from electronica,
rock and folk worlds as well as jazz. Featuring Paul Harrison on organ, Graeme Stephen, guitar, Chris Wallace drums.
The common languages are those of jazz and improvisation, however, elements of rock, ambient/electronic and folk/world music are also prevalent in the sound. The jazz press has compared NeWt's sound to everything from “New York underground” (Tim Berne/Jim Black's Alas No Axis), to “Lyrical Post-bop” (Dave Holland's recent Quintet) and even Stravinsky. Featuring Chris Wallace, drums, Graeme Stephen Guitar and Chris Greives Trombone.
FRASER FIFIELD / GRAEME STEPHEN DUO
Fifield's pipes / sax / whistle / kaval / cajon / electronics with Stephen’s guitar genius create a truly original sound, rooted in the Scottish folk tradition but exploratory by nature, which has consistently drawn critical acclaim. The musical result is sophisticated, emotional and unique.
