& in the Nighttime She Is There
Following the success of her 2010 debut 'Tangent', Trish Clowes further extends her depth and range with this majestic second album, it's title derived from an Oscar Wilde poem. The subtle, mysterious music is performed by two different ensembles, including a nonet featuring a string quartet that features 'staggeringly virtuosic' violinist Thomas Gould. Clowes explores a fascinating hinterland between jazz and contemporary classical music, combining fluent improvisation with evocative melodic lines and shifting textures. Guests include pianist Gwilym Simcock and singer Kathleen Willison.
