Clockwork, jazz pianist Victor Gould’s debut as a bandleader has arrived.
The album features Ben Williams (Pat Metheny’s Unity Band) on bass, and even features an homage to bass great/composer Ron Carter, called “Sir Carter.” The record includes sextet arrangements and pieces augmented by strings.
“I didn’t want to be locked in with instrumentation,” Gould says. “I’ve come to believe that the best orchestration is when you change instrumentation very often. So you could think of that in the scheme of one piece or a whole record.”
