Days And Nights At The Takeaway 7: July

Our July edition of Days And Nights At The Takeaway, which is on sale today, sees Seb collaborate with American jazz pianist Jason Moran.

The track ‘Years’ takes a slightly different approach to the previous releases of the series, with Seb layering drums over an improvisation Moran sent him.

“I was blown away by the music” Seb says, “and felt a little intimidated by it. I decided to not listen to it again until I threw myself in and improvised live drum takes and live iPad and synth figures, and took it from there.”

Moran’s ‘Improvisation’ can also be heard in its original form on the second track.

“This improvisation was taken from a solo concert in northern Italy,” says Jason. “Midway through my performance I realised, I owe Seb some music! So, this piece arose out of the many conversations Seb and I have had about sound. I thought the flurry of glissandos would pique his interest. I love the outcome.”

“I felt the original piece Jason sent was so incredible that I wanted other people to hear it,” adds Seb.
