Track of the week: artephis – Selfdom

Aaron Wood’s (@ellbbww) contemporary jazz-rock quintet artephis has just released a brand new version of his tune ‘Selfdom’, which he wrote about a year ago to play in Bergen, Norway.  It’s been re-recorded with The Untold Orchestra, and it’s absolutely beautiful.  It moves between an opening filled with intense, orchestral colour evoking vast landscapes to a lilting, chattering groove that expands out into some intense solos on keys and trumpet. Aaron’s playing is clear proof as to why he’s becoming one of the hottest trumpet players on the Manchester scene right now.

Listen to the whole track here:

Go and spend your hard-earned cash on artephis’ album ‘All Change No Change’ on Bandcamp.  You won’t regret it.

We’ll shout when it’s released on Spotify and we can add it to our Track of the week playlist.  Meanwhile, enjoy the rest of our selections here:
