About the album

This new release is the “boy jazz genius” Dominic J. Marshall’s debut album with Challenge Records. After studying classical piano for ten years, Dominic was awarded the Alan Hawkshaw scholarship to study jazz at Leeds College of Music. By summer 2010 his graduation recital had won him the LCM Piano Prize. His previous album Spirit Speech has been praised by many critics, and was nominated for an Edison Jazz International Award in 2014. On this release, Marshall uses two different rhythm sections and involves elements from electronic and hip-hop music, distinguishing his unique sound from other jazz pianists.

De Brits/Nederlandse jazzpianist Dominic J Marshall wordt geprezen door vakgenoten als Jamie Cullum en BBC dj Gilles Peterson.

Op North Sea Jazz 2015 genoot het publiek van de soepele eigentijdse jazz die hij bracht met zijn band. Met zijn bloemetjesbroek en ketting was hij een eigenzinnige musicus die, soms met gekruiste armen, koos voor breed uitgesponnen melodieën, leunend op de groove.

Op zijn derde album, tevens debuut album bij Challenge Records, kun je horen dat hij twee verschillende ritme sessies gebruikt en dat hij elementen van electronische en hip hop muziek vermengd.

'Stolz auf seine Einflüsse, ohne sich von Ihnen übermannen zu lassen: das Resultat ist erfrischend und innovativ', so beschreibt Bruce Lindsay bei AllAboutJazz die Musik des 1989 geborenen Pianisten und Komponisten Dominic J. Marshall. Und mit dieser Meinung steht er nicht allein da. Jamie Cullum bringt diese Einflüsse auf den Punkt:

'Man kann - nicht nur in seinem Spiel, sondern auch in seinen Kompositionen - kleine Elemente von Duke Ellington und Thelonious Monk direkt neben denen von Keith Jarrett und Brad Mehldau hören, ebenso wie die Einflüsse klassischer Musik. Diese schelmischen, mathematischen Kompositionen von Bach zum Beispiel. Und gleichzeitig ist er inspiriert von den Rhythmen und Offbeat-Texturen von Hip-Hop-Produzenten wie J Dilla. Er versammelt dieses großartige Erbe der Vergangenheit mit etwas Frischem und Neuem und all das innerhalb der Grenzen eines simplen, akustischen Piano Trios.'

Auf seinem vierten Album 'The Triolithic' verarbeitet der 27-jährige sein bisheriges Leben. Die Songs sind inspiriert von persönlichen Ereignissen, Familienerinnerungen und Reisen. Keine Frage, dass er hierfür auch mit verschiendenen Künstlern zusammen arbeitete, die seine bisherige Laufbahn begleiten. Dominic J. Marshall studierte in seiner Heimat England und den Niederlanden, wo er jeweils mit fixen Rhythmusgruppen arbeitet. Durch die unterschiedlichen Einflüsse dieser beiden Gruppen entwickelten sich die Stücke seiner letzten Alben bei Livekonzerten in verschiedene Richtungen, so dass er entschied für 'The Triolithic' mit beiden Gruppen zu arbeiten und jeweils die Versionen zu wählen, die dem Song das nötige Je ne sais quoi, eine klangliche Tiefe, verleihen.

After being accepted on to the Masters course at Conservatorium van Amsterdam in autumn of the same year, Dominic was lucky enough to receive guidance from the likes of Kurt Rosenwinkel, Aaron Parks, Dave Douglas, Gerald Clayton, Brad Mehldau and Ambrose Akinmusire. His first trio CD ‘The Oneness’ was recorded, self-produced and released in this time, Chris Parker of LondonJazz calling it ‘a striking debut’.
In April 2011 Dominic received The Countess of Munster Musical Trust Award for young British musicians of exceptional ability, which financed the final year of his postgrad. After graduating ‘Cum Laude’ in May 2012 with a 10, his second trio CD ‘Icaros’ was released on the F-IRE Label (‘…certainly on a par with any other piano trio I’ve heard this year, if not better. A five-star offering if ever there was one.’ – JJ Wheeler) and went on to win Best International Jazz Album 2012 on TokyoJazzNotes.
In March 2013 Dominic was awarded a full grant from Help Musicians UK’s Emerging Excellence Award with which to record a new album. In summer of that year he was selected unanimously by a jury of Jamie Cullum, Gilles Peterson and Jez Nelson to perform at the ‘BBC Introduces’ showcase at Band on the Wall, as part of Manchester Jazz Festival. The live recording was broadcast in August for BBC Radio 3.
Dominic’s latest CD ‘Spirit Speech’ was released through Origin Arts in Spring 2014. It has been called ‘an excellent, imaginative and distinctive album that repays repeated listens’ by LondonJazzNews, and ‘Already an undoubted jazz highlight of 2014. Masterful!’ by CultuurPodium. It was on the basis of this recording that his trio was selected to play at the Dutch Jazz Competition 2014, from which Dominic took home the ‘Best soloist’ award.
Parallel to his piano career, Dominic has been making electronic beats since his teenage years. Under the name 〄 DJM 〄 he has built up a following outside the jazz-world with several EPs of his self-produced projects, BExperimental blog declaring him ‘a rare find who will be a formidable force in years to come.’ This has culminated most recently in the release of his first cassette ‘Foreground Music’ through Patient Sounds. On the horizon: a live tape featuring beats by several of his favourite producers coming soon to the notorious Paxico Records label.
