Acoustic Alchemy - "Roseland" Release tomorrow on Heads Up #jazz

The UK-based group Acoustic Alchemy are set to release their new album, Roseland, on September 27th. “We’re very excited about this recording,” says Acoustic Alchemy co-founder Greg Carmichael. “It represents an entirely new chapter for the band. By establishing a new label, we’re taking more control of our own direction, and by partnering with Heads Up and their resources, we can reach the broadest possible audience worldwide.” Carmichael and co-founder Miles Gilderdale are joined by keyboardist Fred White, bassists Gary Grainger and Julian Crampton, and drummer Greg Grainger. Other assistance in the sessions comes from Hammond organist Ricky Peterson (Bonnie Raitt, David Sanborn, Joe Sample), pedal steel player Frank Mizen, drummers Dan Mizen and Sam Hobbs and a full complement of horn players. Roseland was was recorded in Gilderdale’s newly constructed home studio in York, England. “We used the studio as a place to write,” says Carmichael. “We would just throw ideas at each other.... We just tried things until we found what did work.” The band kicks off a tour of the US in support of the album on October 5th, in Minneapolis.
