Album Notes
Rory is a fine Australian jazz pianist capable of highly energetic spontaneity as well as very controlled subdued playing. He has developed a reputation as a pianist for his use of rich harmonic chord structures, melodic ideas and strong time. Having already appeared on many albums as a sideman; he now releases his highly anticipated debut album ‘New Beginnings’. This album presents some of Australia’s absolute finest Jazz and Classical musicians as well as taking the listener on a beautiful journey of jazz from sonorous ballads and waltzes to simmering bossa-novas and up-tempo tunes.

OFFICIAL CD LAUNCH - Friday 8th OCT at 7pm - Dizzy's Jazz Club 381 Burnley Street, Richmond AUSTRALIA

Ron Spain - Australian JazzScene

A Good One To Buy
"Five compositions from the leader, with one of each by Kenny Dorham and Clare Fischer, bring a fine bunch of musicians to the fore under the inspired guidance of a new young pianist of enviable talent.

New Beginnings is an appropriate introduction to the recording and to the composer, Follow Me is a bossa nova sung by Louisa Rankin who has a voice that evokes fond memories of Astrud Gilberto, La Mesha is a journey into introspection, Dexter's Drawcard is bop at its very best with driving rhythm backing and Rory stretched out, with Fem Belling exercising her jazz chops like Blossom Dearie on Train Stop.

The seven tunes offer contrast, with the arrangements for strings, horns and voices hold the attention from start to finish. A good one to buy for a night at home alone."

Neal Sellars

A Quality Production At Every Level.
Young Melbourne pianist Rory Clark’s CD “New Beginnings” is a quality production at every level.
In “New Beginnings”, Rory establishes his reputation as a composer of note. Five of the seven tracks are his compositions. The tight horn section and subtle use of the strings add variety, as do the vocals.
Tasteful, sensitive musicianship, superbly recorded with informative cover notes.
