about

“Utopia part 1” begins with a very open solo piano melody, which is then layered with the rest of the band at the top of each phrase. When composing this, I was thinking in rich, lush ambient colours similar to the sense of euphoria in Kenny Wheelers “Sweet Time Suite”. Kenny Wheeler is a true master of melodic development and recurring themes and so I kept the spirit of “Sweet Time Suite” in this piece.
