about

This Hampshire & Foat project should not come as too much of a surprise to those familiar with Greg& Warren's music, influenced heavily by not just Jazz but the library sound of the 60s and 70s along with film soundtracks from the same golden era. Greg & Warren are avid collectors of this music, Greg sends me links night and day to LPs he has picked up digging on his travels. This constant search sends him down new musical pathways and often sparks a whole new concepts for projects. Warren and Greg are both fiercely creative talented individuals which means we have to keep them working, a challenge for us all, but the music rewards the effort many times over.

We had talked for a long time about doing a Library style LP (something Greg is very passionate about) so during different recording sessions Greg & Warren started laying down various tracks with a view to the LP we have here.

Side one is 5 tracks in very distinct styles, musical paintings for the big screen. The vast sound of the Japanese influenced Jasmine, The Spaghetti Western melancholy of Mariposa Lily, The call to action that is Antonio's Theme, The Breezy Vintage sports car in the sun that Coastal Drive paints, and Lost in Nostalgia, a late night Poirotesk piece.

Side 2

Is a classic library suite, which Greg describes as a Detective's theme with different variations on the motifs.
