Album Notes
A few weeks after Meg Morley's well-received debut solo piano release in March this year, the Australian pianist formed a trio with British bass player Richard Sadler and Italian drummer Emiliano Caroselli to record an album of her original music in London. The three discovered a musical affinity whilst briefly working together in 2014 on MIA Panboola's album Searching not Finding - which also featured Morley's compositions. A sense of fun and quirkiness shared between the three is apparent throughout the debut album, Can't Get Started, originating from their individual backgrounds: Morley is a classically-trained pianist/composer, primarily improvising for dance and silent film whilst also studying jazz; the prodigiously self-taught Sadler is proficient in various musical styles, and has performed with an impressive range of musicians (e.g. Sam Kelly - Cymande; Ray Davies - the Kinks; Neil Cowley Trio; ISQ); and the remarkably sensitive and virtuosic Caroselli is strongly immersed in the 'jazz' tradition with influences also from pop, rock and from Cuba (after having lived and studied in Havana for three years).

Can't Get Started opens with the rhythmically intriguing title track then moves to the deeply reflective D.C.M.. It changes tack again with the dynamically exciting and impressionistic Rush Hour (also on Morley's EP but transformed here for the trio setting) then onto the forthright and somewhat farcical Polly (Part 1). Morley's classical background clearly reveals itself in the tune Caged, resulting in a modern, spacious and contemplative yet dynamic study. Overall the album displays a rich variety of tunes (all composed by Morley) which combined with the players' exceptional musicianship and sense of interplay make for an extremely engaging listen.

Aside from Rush Hour (originally composed for Morley's EP), the tunes for Can't Get Started were intensively written and rehearsed over a period of three months, and recorded over two separate days at Smokehouse Studios in East London. The album was released July 31 and will be launched at the Vortex Jazz Club on 23rd February 2018.

Morley is also a rising star in the silent film world and is excited to involve the trio on this journey: they performed a live improvised score for silent film footage, screened by Film London, July 30 in Bermondsey Square, Southwark and are also in discussion about an original silent film score that will potentially tour in 2018.
