V/A “London On Key” (Waella’s Choice)
A compilation of new and original work from some of the best players in the capital, including Duval Timothy and members of Yussef Dayes Trio, Ruby Rushton, The Comet Is Coming, Vels Trio and Triforce.
After sailing through soulful House waters with Hanna and RANGEr on their first two releases, Waella’s Choice turn their eyes on London Jazz for their third.
“London On Key” is a twelve-track compilation, showcasing some of the best pianists in the capital. Out on 29th of March, the release coincides with Piano Day, an annual worldwide event which falls on the 88th day of the year (after the number of keys on a piano).
Artists include longstanding figureheads to members of some of premium bands like Yussef Dayes Tio, Ruby Rushton, Vels Trio, and The Comet Is Coming. Their contributions range from reflective compositions, disarming juxtapositions, Jazz Dance foundations, wonky synth grooves, pedal experimentations and a cover of UK trip-hop band Attica Blues from one of its co-founders. The result is a vibrant celebration of the piano and a calling card for the rude health of Jazz in the capital.
Artwork designed by Duval Timothy and will be available as prints alongside the digital release.
