Hailing from Sweden, “Dark is the Sun” emerges as a captivating concept album crafted by British pianist, composer, and arranger Greg Foat. Within this musical odyssey, Foat seamlessly intertwines non-contemporary jazz elements with timeless scoring techniques, resulting in a mesmerizing fusion of sounds. The album’s sonic landscape is enriched by an eclectic array of instruments, including the enchanting tones of harpsichord, the resonant chimes of tubular bells, and the harmonious contributions of a 15-piece choir.

Drawing inspiration from esteemed figures like Bruno Nicolai, Michel Legrand, and Serge Gainsbourg, while also paying homage to the legacy of UK jazz luminaries such as Michael Garrick, Keith Mansfield, and Alan Hawkshaw, “Dark is the Sun” showcases a rich tapestry of influences. The end result is an immersive listening experience that transcends temporal boundaries, offering a deeply satisfying journey for aficionados of authentic music performed with genuine instruments.
