Album Notes
CAM McAllister (trumpet and flugelhorn) believes composition comes more naturally to him than playing. His debut album, which he says is “not about lengthy improvisation”, has an orchestrated feel.
Carefully crafted compositions balance the talents of Dave Rex (alto sax), Mark Fitzgibbon (piano), Tamara Murphy (acoustic bass) and Ben Vanderwal (drums), with Jordan Murray as guest trombonist on three tracks.
At the album’s Bennetts Lane launch last month, the music seemed strong, but cool. The recording highlights flowing, elegant harmonies, backed by strong rhythms from Fitzgibbon, Murphy and Vanderwal.
There is enduring appeal in the complex, interweaving patterns of White Knight, gentle Waterfall and beautiful Clear. McAllister’s short solo on All Roads Lead to Roam recalls the greats he admires. It all reflects a preference for feeling over the “clever” or “different”.
