ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Toronto based contemporary jazz guitarist and composer Harley Card releases Hedgerow, his second independent CD as a bandleader.

A follow up to Card’s 2008 debut Non-Fiction, Hedgrerow introduces ten of his new compositions, featuring stunning performances by some of Canada’s top emerging jazz musicians.
 
On Hedgerow, Card employs many of his long time collaborators - all well known leaders and sidemen in their own right - in quintet, quartet, and trio settings. Drawing from years of live performance experience, the recording showcases new heights of expression and group improvisation from Card and his colleagues. Card demonstrates the versatility of his idiosyncratic voice both on acoustic and electric guitars.

From the frenetic Get There, to Flash Card Etude No.1's infectious swing; and to introspective, unfolding compositions like Sophomore and Coalescence, Hedgerow is packed with elegant writing and contemporary ensemble playing of the highest order. 

Harley’s skills as arranger and producer ring through as he calls upon a range of disparate sonic influences to achieve a cohesive musical whole. Throughout the recording, a vast array of textures and moods are tied together by strong melodic themes, rich harmonic landscapes, and the encompassing vision of a masterwork.

"Card’s musical sensibility is fully formed and urbane. His writing reflects a sense of history and is therefore worldly wise."                                                                           - Raul d’Gama Rose- All About Jazz
