Returning with her first taste of new music since her debut LP Rosie’s 5ive (Jazz re:freshed) in 2019, trombonist’s Rosie Turton continues to excite with Part II.
The track is lifted from Turton’s upcoming EP titled Expansions and Transformations: Part I & II.
The four-track project is an exploration of impermanence and evolution and how this intertwines music and mind.
Speaking about the EP, Turton explains, “Parts I and II are a story of finding a way to break through the turbulence and remembering that on the other side of the storm there is always the sun shining. I enjoy the sudden emotional contrasts in music, I want to draw people in and take them on a journey as they listen to it. The EP’s concept is about the impermanence of ideas and concepts, acknowledging the contrasts between moments in time. The B Side is reworks of ideas, I really enjoy exploring new directions that a composition can take, it’s limitless. I don’t want it to just stop at when a tune is immortalised through being recorded and put out on a record.”
For Expansions and Transformations: Part I & II, Turton collaborated with Johanna Burnheart (violin), Maria Chiara Argirò (piano & synthesisers), Twm Dylan (bass), Jake Long (drums), Ben Hayes (electronics) and Tom Oldfield (cello).
