Amoresque-The Spirit of Amoresque
Four jazz musicians channel using the medium of collective unified consciousness which invites the spirit of natural expression to spontaneously realize through them. With ongoing passion Ray forms the Ray Vanderby Jazz Quartet and like an inspired medium, he composes 10 compositions by ear which leads to the release of his debut jazz piano recording and 15th album, Amoresque - the Spirit of Amoresque. The music is visual like an artist's painting of inter-woven layers, textures, colours, moods and flavours, invoking incantations of charms from far away places. Ray's self taught piano style is untrained and natural as it flows with spirituality. It couples the experienced rhythm section of drummer Warren Baker and bassist Adam Bodkin who in turn draw formidable lines with Greg Gibson's mature flamboyant tenor, alto and soprano sax playing. The music has baroque undertones hinting that it's manifestation came through that era portal into being as an expression of Amoresque - the Spirit of Amoresque.
