It has been 13 years since Cobblestone Jazz debuted on the now infamous
IIWII imprint, and in March of 2015 things will come full circle with
the trio from Canada returning for the 16th release on the label where
it all started. 'Northern Lights' features tight gated keys layered with
complex harmonies and soaring pad swells. Equally suited for peak time
and sunrise, it is an incredibly versatile piece for the crate and
clocks in at an ever evolving 11+ minutes 'Drawn From The Side Of Crime'
is found on the flip, and is another long and twisting musical journey
running just shy of 13 minutes. Its foundation is a meditative bassline
that rolls underneath for the duration. Hints of a beautiful modal
Rhodes line tease throughout the arrangement, adding a complex depth to
the fabric of the piece. These recordings were done in one pass over a
three day period in 2013, and edits were culled this past winter. The
record as a whole is arguably their most musical and expansive release
to date, which all things considered is quite a statement in itself.
Cobblestone Jazz are extremely proud to be sharing this release on the
imprint from where they began.
