Pianist Rob Barron has been a mainstay on the London jazz and studio scene for years and is highly regarded for his improvisational flair, innate musicality and a deft touch that reveal influences inspired by Blue Note greats Cedar Walton, Wynton Kelly and Sonny Clark. Barron’s latest recording, From This Moment On, features Jeremy Brown on bass and Josh Morrison on drums and follows his critically acclaimed 2016 debut What’s In Store.
“On this album I feel I have created a work that reflects who I am as an artist today. In a departure from my debut album, this recording centres on the piano trio. Now is the time to produce a classic trio recording that reflects my influences and puts me in the piano trio spotlight,” explains Barron. “My playing and arranging style has developed greatly since my debut and I feel energised by the musical bond within the trio, the arrangements and the space I am in as a player.”
From This Moment On is a beautiful collection of music featuring compositions by Barron (‘Fortune Green’ and ‘Evidently’) as well as imaginative interpretations of classics from the Great American Songbook. “‘From This Moment On’ struck me as the perfect name for this album. As well as being the title of the Cole Porter song featured on the record, I felt the optimistic narrative of the lyrics (‘From this moment on, No more blue songs/ We’ll be riding high/ Every care is gone…’) is a positive and hopeful sentiment during this period of crisis in the world,” says Barron. “It brings a sense of looking forward to a brighter future.”
