PRESALE OPEN NOW! Johnny Richards - Build A Friend (NEWJAiM6)

(Press release)

We’re delighted to announce that with generous support from Jazz North Open Bursary on 16th April we will be issuing our sixth release on New Jazz and Improvised Music Recordings.

PRESALE AVAILABLE NOW

Johnny Richards - Build A Friend (NEWJAiM6)

Johnny Richards is a pianist and composer based in Leeds, UK. Having graduated from Leeds Conservatoire in 2010 he has played a prominent part in the UK improvised music scene as a solo performer and with bands such as Shatner’s Bassoon, also frequently collaborating with artists including James Mainwaring (Roller Trio) and Radek Rudnicki (Space F!ght).

It’s a great pleasure to feature Build A Friend as the sixth release in the first wave of NEWJAiM Recordings, a deal sealed by Johnny Richards and Project Director Wesley Stephenson following a dialogue surrounding the classic Francis Ford Coppola movie ‘The Conversation’  from 1974, and a mutual love of Aphex Twin, make of that what you will.

This collection of 15 improvisations was recorded over two sessions. Frequently employing prepared piano we are presented with a wide textural and audio palette, resulting in a consistently engaging, rich and varied album which commands repeated listening. 

New Jazz and Improvised Music Recordings

The New Jazz and Improvised Music Recordings project was established during the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, offering a creative output for musicians when live performance opportunities were unavailable and encouraging artist independence. 

Emphasising sustainability for artists and music studios, the ethos of sustainability also carries through the production process by employing a carbon neutral manufacturing plant and distributors, using recycled and biodegradable materials whenever possible. 

From December 2020 through to April 2021 the label will distribute the first 6 project releases, with more scheduled throughout the year. 

The New Jazz and Improvised Music Recordings project is brought to you from the director of Newcastle Festival of Jazz and Improvised Music.
