Take One (2015)

Davis, Piltch, Earle, MacColl, Nevin, Traditional

Aaron Davis, Rob Piltch

This is a truly intimate and personal acoustic Jazz album from member of the Holly Cole Trio was recorded ‘off the floor’ on an analogue 1/2” tape recorder at 30 ips, non-Dolby, with no overdubs.  It is a wonderful spontaneous fusion of spirit.
Whether playing simply as a duo, with Davis on piano and Piltch on acoustic bass, or with the occasional guest on some tracks, their dedication to the ‘spirit of ensemble music’ is palpable.
