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.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
