ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This music flows from so many influences; all the music I have loved is poking it's head up over the window sill... traces of The Beatles that I loved as a kid; the many great blues artists, like Elmore James, that inspired me to expand my playing beyond the contemporary acoustic finger picking style I had learnt from the tunes of Bert Jansch and others; the wonderful Peter Green and Dave Gilmour had a strong effect on me with their aching melancholic playing; Frank Zappa took over my whole blinkin' life for years! Lowell George and Little Feat; George Duke, EW&F, Jean Luc Ponty, Mahavishnu Orchestra... I could go on listing but enough's enough.

This album took several years to write and record, I'm quite proud of it to be honest and so pleased to be able to release it. The music is basically what 'pooted out' of my melting-pot-head (no pun intended) and I hope it gives pleasure in the listening.

Smooth Jazz Rock Heaven
A wonderfully crafted and beautifully sounding album. These tracks seem to calm the soul and bring a sense of inner tranquility. A testament not only to Nigel's technical abilities as a supreme guitarist but also as a gifted composer. This eclectic collection of tracks contain sounds and styles reminiscent of many of the masters from the fusion genre, but still maintain a unique identity.
Scintillating production values provide the ear candy and thoughtful arrangements make this a listening experience to enjoyed over and over again.
In my view, definitely a red wine album ( vintage) and a favourite chair. Reflective , passionate and consummate.
Kudos Mr Harpur, Encore!

A Treat for the Ear
A truly engaging album from a seasoned musician, Collage seems to span jazz, funk and rock, but really is its own idiom. Each track is well-crafted and there’s plenty of variation to keep you guessing but without jarring.

Nigel is a guitarist but my favourite track has to be the plangent keyboard-and-guitar number, ‘Now That You’re Gone’. It seems to nod to France and Spain as well as to Classical influences – listen to the pauses and variations – a gentle counterpoint to the more upbeat tempos of the other tracks.

Musical quips abound (even in the song titles!). It’s an album that wants you to listen and say, “Oh, yes, I hadn’t noticed that first time round” – a musical treat for the ear. Listen... you won’t be disappointed.
