सानंदना An ear-watering blend of modern and contemporary jazz, played by highly talented musicians. Do I detect an Archie Shepp influence perchance?

Michael Feihstel This has the potential to be one of those very approachable, timeless Jazz albums that you would recommend to someone new to the genre. An album that appeals to the beginner's ear as well as the taste of an experienced listener. Favorite track: The Magic Radish.

about

Greg Foat’s 9th album 'The Mage' joins the dots between the past and future of British jazz. Enlisting the talents of jazz/library/soundtrack legends Duncan Lamont, Art Themen, Ray Russell and Clark Tracey to collaborate with their modern contemporaries Greg Foat, Moses Boyd and Heliocentric's drummer Malcolm Catto to create something undeniably British but outward looking and global.

A long time personal ambition for Greg was to work with Trinidadian songstress Kathy Garcia, on 'The Mage', this wish is granted as she joins him to re-imagine the deep Xian masterpiece ‘Of my Hands', 45 years after recording it as a young girl.

Greg’s compositions and arrangements showcase the old and new, downtempo folkscapes, free jazz with notes of hip-hop and soul from the young team flavouring the mix. Featuring Simon Ljungman and Friends as a male choir, Greg's EMS Synthi AKS experiments (made famous by Dr Who) the album is a testament to the versatility and pure musicality of all those involved and Greg Foat’s ability to bring artists together to record beautiful, timeless music.

- Greg first solo album for Athens of the North
- Featuring Jazz and Library Legends Duncan Lamont, Art Themen and Ray Russell
- Featuring Moses Boyd & Malcolm Catto
