Recorded on their 2005 tour of sacred buildings...

Not to be confused with the similarly monickeredLadyland or Alchemy, Acoustic Triangle are possibly the finest chamber jazz outfit working in the UK at the moment.Led by bassist Malcom Creese and comprising Tim Garland (winds) and rising star Gwilym Simcock (piano, french horn), they live up to their name by playing most of their gigs entirely unamplified.
This CD was recorded on their recent tour of sacred buildings and features performances recorded at Romsey and Dorchester Abbeys. The trio explore these fantastic acoustic spaces with grace, delicacy and muscle. Folkish melodies, Italian church music and old chestnuts from Kenny Wheeler and Stan Tracey rub shoulders in a thoughtful, engaging set that knocks spots off the pale, tired atmospherics of the currentECM crowd.
