Album Description

Two years after the release of their debut album Rustik Musik William Soovik Grand Finale is back with the follow up; Major. This time it's a bit looser and slightly more stretched out than before. Still with the melodies and energy from our first album, Rustik Musik. Unlike our first album this one doesn’t spring from a “particularly heavy gig-drought”. It’s been a couple of pretty good years since our debut. I’ve had the pleasure to make some really nice music with some great musicians and this time the record is truly a product of genuine inspiration, a minor life crisis, jazz, improvisation and rock n’ roll in a big greasy bucket. The music is still rustic and insanely fun to play. This time we’ve tried to capture the way the music sounds in a live situation. We are allowing ourselves more time to develop our solos and stretch out. It’s more open, more rickety, looser and all together a wilder expression of our sound than on our first album but always melodic and even beautiful sometimes. One of the tunes is a jingle for a sitcom that never aired. The same tune is later a reflection around life as a semi- established, lightly crising, freelance musician who makes music that most people don't care for. One is a homage to Mr Carson from Downton Abbey. One is a continuation, one is an ending, one is a wedding waltz in 4/4 time, one is a cry for help and one is just a melody. I would truly appreciate it if you took the time to listen to what we’ve done here. I am happy and proud and I feel like we made something really special with this one. I’m just a musician though, so what do I know...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
