ReviewWhen I saw the cover to this album, never having heard of Jason Upton before, I thought it looked like it could be a Badly Drawn Boy cover: it's a great piece of art; something a little conceptual; the piano at centre; an impressionistic, jazz-tinged look to things. I was intrigued and wondered whether my hastily-made preconceptions would prove right.
So, the album was recorded at Mr Upton's home. Apparently the band just gathered around and worshipped. There were probably snacks - I'm thinking brownies and nachos (not together). Actually, there's no evidence of the snack element...
