Birchall and Woolhouse

 

The intimacy of the duet allows for spacious, relaxed interaction between pianist Jeremy Woolhouse and bassist Shannon Birchall.   The duo feature compositions from Jeremy stemming from the traditions of jazz and branching out to embrace gospel, contemporary jazz, pop, classical and South American music.

 

In the duet setting, the virtuosity of Shannon Birchall comes to the fore as the bass weaves a rich tapestry with the piano.  Soaring bowed melodies and contrapuntal interplay contrast steady groove and dramatic unison.  Jeremy and Shannon first collaborated in 2002 in the Estuary Three jazz-tango project on Jeremy’s album Thumbnails.  The duo reunited in 2012 to record The Scenery of Life Unfolding and continue the journey into lightness and darkness, illusion and delusion.
