Some Like It Plucked


On "Some Like it Plucked" harpsichordist, organist and conductor Patrick Ayrton successfully combines jazz and 20th century piano pieces in arrangements for harpsichord. Ayrton's ensemble Les Inventions and violinist Thomas Gould join in for the piece de resistance of this album: Joseph Horovitz's 1965 Jazz Harpsichord Concerto.

In this highly entertaining concerto, Horovitz ingeniously crosses Vivaldian sonata and concerto forms with Gershwinian harmonies in what the composer describes himself as "an attempt to fuse Baroque structures into a modern conception of swing texture".

This album forms an important addition to the very limited repertoire of jazz recordings involving harpsichord. "Some Like it Plucked" is available as a hand numbered 1.000 copy limited edition.
