All About Love (feat. Tom Bone Ralls, Oliver Steinberg & Billie Davies)

by The Billie Davies Trio

I would describe this music as "contemporary modal with a romantic twist" or perhaps "neo-Cool Jazz". Very much like Freddie Hubbard, Tony Williams, Wayne Shorter, Miles Davis, Eric Dolphy & Jackie McLean but in 2012. Lyrical, good phrasing, nice rhythms.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"all about Love" by The Billie Davies Trio ...
Going back in time, find some wonderful classics, and give them a contemporary/improvisational twist...
It gives Billie Davies the greatest pleasure to be able to bring back these particular songs with a new perspective to an audience.

"... I would describe this music as "contemporary modal with a romantic twist" or perhaps "neo-Cool Jazz". Very much like Freddie Hubbard, Tony Williams, Wayne Shorter, Miles Davis, Eric Dolphy & Jackie McLean but in 2012. Lyrical, good phrasing, nice rhythms but at the same time very approachable and listenable even for non jazz audiences. One could not better describe it then "Post-Cool Jazz"... " Daniel Coffeng.

The style and spirit is Jazz, in its purest form. Billie Davies adopted "Post-Cool Jazz", after a beautiful quote by Daniel Coffeng on the music on "all about Love", to give their style of music a name.
The recordings were done "Live", so to speak, all the musicians are playing live in a circle in one room that has been acoustically treated only to the extent of hearing the right acoustics.
We used a 16 channel Firewire Mackie and a Fastrack Pro to bring it all into ProTools 9.x.
In mixing they made sure to preserve the integrity of the playing, and work with the bleed rather then against it. Billie Davies for one is happy with the sound they achieved from mixing. Nothing has been filtered except for some reverb on the horn.
The dynamics are of the highest importance in all their recordings... and the title says it all... "all about Love" is in Billie Davies' opinion romantic, and passionate and all about LOVE.
Personnel:
On Trombone: Tom Bone Ralls
On Bass: Oliver Steinberg
On Drums: Billie Davies
Recording: George Radai.
Mixing: Mike Davies, Billie Davies.
Mastering: John Vestman at Vestman Mastering on 05/18/2012 in HD format.
Recording & Sound Technology/Engineering Management: Mike Davies.

Expectations were achieved, resulting in a recording that does not loose the character, passion and dynamics of the instruments and music played... a great Jazz recording where each instrument can shine individually.
