Following previous releases Dream Your Dream and Good To Go, pianist, keyboardist and MOBO jazz-nominee Duncan Millar returns with ten new enticing tracks. Filled out by a full band including sax and trumpet, the keyboard-led melodies take you on a journey through a range of sensuous moods and grooves, ranging from funk to slow-samba to jazz-waltz.
It's been a while since my previous releases, and I've been thinking a lot about how the music should be on this new album.
The piano and keyboards are even more to the fore, and I've spent time exploring the unique sound of vintage instruments such as Fender Rhodes and Wurlitzer electric pianos.
As a result of fresh musical influences, I also explore grooves and moods that are a little new to me, and also fresh ways to complete an album, as this album is self-produced and released on new boutique label Warmday Records.
Hope you enjoy!
