Following notable work in Terrence Blanchard's band, this is pianist Aaron Parks' debut for Blue Note. It is an original solution to the known challenge of voicing a piano/guitar quartet, this achieved by subtle use of synthesized effects on Mike Moreno's expressive guitar playing.

The album takes jazz forward towards a new audience, not by collapsing into mainstream pop but by embracing the attitude of the progressive rock of Radiohead, Coldplay and Kean. These influences are clearest on "Nemesis" but are implied throughout.

Aaron Parks' compositions and his playing bristle with jazz ingenuity, inspired vamping piano runs and complex rhythms. Eric Harland's synth drumming and Matt Penman's perceptive bass playing are just right for this new approach.

Despite this depth, there are strong melody lines to grab your immediate interest.

A powerful and original album.

And the cinema? The images that you provide for this inspiring and suggestive music can be just what you want them to be.
