Brady’s latest album features six original compositions & lyrics, the music features exploratory improv. Sometime’s hypnotically insistent, sometimes turbulent. All with a lasting story of experience & moments past. Kevin Brady describes the sound of the album:
“As the most musically connected experience the trio has had since our first outing in 2007.The inclusion of the wonderful singer Norma Winstone added a beautiful musical texture to the tunes. Both Bill and Dave’s performances as always, brought real musical depth to each of my new tunes. I was delighted and very fortunate that Norma agreed to guest on the album, as her musicality and voice added so much to the music.” Ensam also features remarkable re-workings of the popular jazz standards But Not For Me by George Gershwin, a unique duet performance by Carrother’s & Winstone of the Matt Dennis song ‘The Night We Called It A Day’ and an exhilarating quartet performance of the Keith Jarrett composition ‘Southern Smiles’.
