Transient - Freddie Gavita CD

Overview
Aimed at the heart, not the head, this is Freddie’s highly evocative collection of compositions written for long time collaborators and quartet members Tom Cawley (piano), Calum Gourlay (double bass) and James Maddren (drums). The music has global appeal with scintillating grooves, heartfelt ballads and some serious swing taking you on a musical journey inspired by many travels and tales of Freddie’s life. A collective of mature and virtuosic improvisers, each selflessly supporting the others to create a unique band dynamic. The debut album Transient launched on the 28th April 2017. 'Although he seems to be a permanent fixture in the Ronnie Scott club’s various house bands, this is trumpeter Freddie Gavita’s debut album with his own quartet. He has a soft, non-brassy tone that is so attractive that, at first, you scarcely notice the range, articulation and virtuosity of his playing. Until, that is, some impossibly long and ingenious phrase makes the point. All 10 pieces here are his own compositions and these, too, are deceptively easy on the ear. They’re alluring, but there’s nothing random or commonplace about them. The Kickstarter sponsors who funded this can be well pleased with what they have made possible.'...the Guardian
