Guitarist and composer Jonny Phillip’s Oriole features a unique set of musicians chosen for their musicalopenness, empathetic playing and ability to assimilate folkloric styles into a unified contemporary sound.
First formed in 2004 their members represent something of a F-IRE super group, albeit one whose sound is a millionmiles from the left-field jazz often associated with the ground breaking collective of which they are associated. Oriole’s first two albums Song for the Sleeping –2005 and Migration 2006 were released to critical success, with elements of South American folklore, art rock and rich cinematic tapestries sitting together naturally. The combination of these elements is in part what makes Oriole’s sound so powerful and effecting. Jonny is at the heart of Oriole, not only as composer and arranger, but also the guitarist quietly holding things together, the perfect foil to the outstanding trio of soloists, Ingrid Laubrock (sax), Idris Rahman (sax, clarinet) and Ben Davis (cello) and the formidably tight rhythm section of Seb Rochford (drums), Fernando de Marco (bass) and Adriano Adewale (percussion). Weaving his way between the two is Nick Ramm (piano).
On Oriole’s recently released third album Every New Day you can almost feel the sun passing overhead as Oriole undertakes a musical journey through parched landscapes influenced by the Iberian peninsular, where their composer spent the last few years performing with Spanish, Portuguese and Cuban musicians. This music is warm, not only in its Latin rhythms and alto tonalities but also in the musical interplay of these long-time musical friends who elevate Phillips gently luminous but compellingmusic to new heights. If music could provide vitamin D, Oriole’s new sun soaked sound would be packed full of it or as Jazzwise put it –“Like Polar Bear at carnival time”.
