StrangeFlow I listened to Greg Foat before and really liked his waterfall-like piano style in the Hampshire and Foat Albums. On this album you'll also get to hear nice lyrics and a mixture between folk and jazz as well as the can-like drumming from the Heliocentrics' drummer. Yeah! Favorite track: The Mage.

muschiosauro I'm not exactly a jazz person, but wow, I'm really digging this album! It's so soothing and intriguing. Maybe it's just me, but, besides the clearly recognizable, haunting folk bits, I can pick up some lush, Floydian psychedelic overtones, some trip-hop atmospheres and even a few warm, mellow, downtempo rock vibes. Don't think I'll turn into a jazz person anytime soon, but I'll be treasuring this LP as a precious listening experience. Favorite track: The Mage.

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
