Product details

My Goodness, McGuiness! are connected to an older tradition, of which Bartók himself was enthusiastically a part, and which was best expressed in the jazz idiom by Gil Evans. It is the artist as ethnographer, equipped with education and knowledge but wanting to learn something new, opening their ears to the world and letting it sing to them. The arrangements live up to this attitude in every way, from their openness and light melodic touch to the chosen instrumentation. My Goodness, McGuiness! began as a catharsis for Lucian, a way to process the tunes that he grew up with. With close collaborators in saxophonist Dan Junor, guitarist Aaron Flower and bassist Brendan Clarke - the group continue that theme. Using Fabian Hevia's and Giorgio Rojas' simple percussion instead of the more bombastic sounds of the full kit allows more room for lyricism and balance.
