Pianist/composer Nat Bartsch is joined on this album by the new rhythm section of double bassist Tom Lee (Michelle Nicole Quartet, Vada) and drummer Daniel Farrugia (Luke Howard Trio, Murphy's Law), who replace long-time members Josh Holt and Leigh Fisher. Vocalist Gian Slater and tenor saxophonist Kieran Hensey also perform with the trio on two tracks. This album features Bartsch's new compositions and arrangements of songs by Gotye and Radiohead, as she continues to link Australian/European jazz and minimalism to what she terms her 'Triple J upbringing'. The peaceful, heart-warming aesthetic of Nat Bartsch Trio's previous releases is evident in To Sail, To Sing. However, Bartsch's pianism, and the interplay within her trio, has developed. This recording represents new beginnings for Bartsch after a long break due to illness.
