Ivan Garford is a pianist and teacher living and working in The Fens. During the 2020 lockdown, he sat down with a music software package to see if he could fine-tune some of his better musical compositions. The result is the CD: “Entrance”, featuring Ivan in a duo setting with vibraphonist Derek Scurll.
The CD was recorded at Steinway Studios, Newark. Ivan and Derek have played together in jazz ensembles for many years, but the idea for the CD was to explore some different musical avenues. There are obvious Classical, Minimal and Folk sources but also an added smattering of World Music influences from Japan and South America. There is also a cover version of possibly the greatest pop song ever: Jimmy Webb’s “Wichita Lineman”. Discuss!
The artwork on the CD is by Ivan’s wife, Sarah, and features three lino prints inspired by an afternoon of photography malarkey in the Greenwich Foot Tunnel.
