Description

'Towards the Centre of Everything' is the second solo album from internationally acclaimed pianist and composer Sam Crowe (and debut Whirlwind Recordings release), featuring a set of original compositions by the leader and a true genre-mash of styles, epic colours and moods with improvisation as it's focus, boasting a line up of some of the most exciting and cutting edge young improvisers in the world.

Recorded in two days at the famed Systems Two Studios in NYC, the album features Crowe on piano, Fender Rhodes and keyboards, NYC-based Will Vinson on alto saxophone, the Award winning London-based Adam Waldmann on soprano saxophone, rising star British guitarist Will Davies, the uber-creative Alan Hampton on both double and electric bass, one of the most in demand drummers on the planet in Mark Guiliana and special guest Emilia Martensson on vocals.

The album is a no holds barred continuation and development of the textures and epic themes heard on Crowe's critically acclaimed debut album 'Synaesthesia' with an added New York sensibility to the performances. There are rock and drum and bass influences as well as an ever-present folk feeling to some pieces, which weave a narrative through moody and modal harmony. This is cinematic music of the now; the result of Crowe's lifetime pursuit to amalgamate his ever-evolving palette of musical influences from across the genre-spectrum, both past and present, with improvisation as the central and guiding thread.

Personnel: Sam Crowe (piano, Rhodes, keyboards), Will Vinson (alto saxophone), Adam Waldmann (soprano saxophones), Will Davies (guitar), Alan Hampton (double and electric bass), Mark Guiliana (drums) and special guest Emilia Martensson (vocals)
