Ahead of his Australia-Japan tour, Dorian Ford previews new material including solo, trio & quartet pieces and featuring Vimala Rowe as a special guest vocalist to perform five songs from settings of the medieval Orfeo myth.
The full band features Ford (piano), Mao Yamada (bass) and Demi Garcia Sagat (percussion) to provide an interesting alternative to the traditional rhythm section.
Ford's unique and personal playing style takes in jazz, classical, folk and rock. Encompassing heartfelt melodies and deep grooves, his music journeys devotedly and fearlessly across vast musical landscapes with all their deep history and tradition. Expect notes and atmospheres ranging from the surrealism of Satie, the impressionism of Bill Evans, through to European jazz-rock and ECM vocal textures.
