Adrian Corker - Raise [Village Green Promo]

Scheduled for mid-August via Village Green is Adrian Corker's most recent album "Raise" which can be filed under the flag of Ambient PostJazz meets (Neo)Classical with a slightly electronic and experimental touch and intense but intimate, partly even medieval athmospheres. Well known for his collaborations with Paul Conboy happening about a decade ago on the still well-spoken Vertical Forms label his conceptual solo effort sees Mr. Corker inviting several guest musicians like Helgi Jonsson, Jack Wylie of Portico Quartet-fame or the whole Elysian Quartet to join the mostly improvised recording sessions at several spaces that - after the recording process - were carefully manipulated and reprocessed without taking away any of the close, organic feel that makes "Raise" a perfect album for autumnal home consumption in front of an open fireplace. Sweet one, get.
