Fiona's Comments

Speak to us of love from Nat Birchall's album World without form (http://musicians.allaboutjazz.com/musician.php?id=25971) is a song without words. Accomplished musicianship (despite their suggestions they were conscious when they performed this music), equal measures of confusion, sweetness and meditation, sums love up beautifully.

About the Album

Nat Birchall's fifth album, World Without Form, is a continuation of the music he has been developing for the past few years, as he attempts to compose and play in a way so that the results are a pure representation of the origin of the sound/idea, unencumbered by conscious thought or action. For Birchall then a 'world without form' is the starting point, from which the artists begin their creations. "Speak To Us Of Love" takes it’s name from a phrase from Khalil Gibran's 'The Prophet' and is inspired by Birchall’s belief that musicians, as well as practitioners of other arts, should strive to produce beauty in their works. Personnel: Nat Birchall: soprano saxophone, tenor saxophone, tambourines, shakers, bells; Adam Fairhall: piano; Corey Mwamba: vibes, bells, shakers; Nick Blacka: bass; Paul Hession: drums; Andy Hay: drums, congas, bells, shakers.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
