Fiona's Comments

William Tell never had it so good. Lyrical guitar and drums, builds nicely, going places. Dan Robbins on bass, Weber Iago on keys.

About the Album

Familiar Fields marks Bulgarian modern jazz guitarist/composer Hristo Vitchev's 5th studio recording as a leader. The music presented in this session clearly displays the multidimensional tonal evolution of the band and each one of its individual members. The addition of drummer extraordinaire Mike Shannon to the quartet establishes a portal to new sonic landscapes and emotions to be explored. This collection of 9 impressionistic stories by Vitchev takes the listener through fields filled with color, emotions, and cherished memories. Mixing impressionistic, classical, jazz, and new age sound textures, the quartet retains their unique sonic footprint that has brought them critical acclaim all over the world.
