For some time, Angelo Verploegen wanted to reflect musically on the travels made as a musician. Ironically enough reality caught up with this idea since at this very moment all the traveling came to a literal standstill because of the worldwide coronavirus outbreak. Maybe a reason for the better for some reflection on the act of traveling?
He writes “My many travels all represent a mixed feeling of melancholy, to have to leave my beloved family again, and of excitement about plunging into the unknown. And then of course there is all the inconvenience coming with the traveling itself, which I try to ease as much as I can by carrying as little as possible with him: practicing the Art of Traveling Light.”
He translates traveling lightly literally into a line-up without bass, thus underlining the concept of lightness and transparency in sound. Furthermore, he wanted the sound of the band to be lush and warm, underlining the feeling of comfort and joy in the music we were to record. Wim Bronnenberg with his 1956 Gibson L4 Jazz guitar and the always utmost sensitive drummer Jasper van Hulten were the perfect companions for this project.
This is Angelo’s third album on Just Listen Records (after The Sweetest Sound JL009 and The Duke Book JL019). He also performs on the album Forbidden Fruit by Tois (Turtle TR0002). All four of these albums are available from NativeDSD Music.
