about

Gary Bamford's third album sees him return to the contemporary jazz style of much of his debut Jadj album (co-produced with Jim Barr of Portishead, Get The Blessing etc.). On Restrop Wood (co-produced with Barr's stablemate Jeff Spencer of Crocodile, Bristol Composers Collective etc.), he is reunited with tenor saxophonist and keyboard player Ruth Hammond. The duo have been friends and musical counterparts for over 20 years, and their familiarity with each others playing is in evidence on this double album of Bamford originals. Largely reflective in mood, melancholic at times, many of the tracks are enhanced with samples and effects, but the emphasis remains throughout on composition, improvisation and symbiosis. The double disc CD features some beautiful artwork (by Gary and regular co-designer Ian Taylor) and also contains an extended final track.
