Neil Cowley Trio Top Jazz Chart
The stunning new album from Naim Jazz artist Neil Cowley Trio, The Face of Mount Molehill, reached number 1 in the iTunes Jazz chart after its release on 23rd January 2012.
The Face of Mount Molehill is Neil Cowley Trio’s fourth studio album. It features power pop songs without words, soundtracks in search of a film, exploratory minimalist miniatures, and the coolest TV theme tunes you'll ever hear.
The Face of Mount Molehill has received numerous plaudits in the press ranging from The Telegraph hailing it as “…a loveable English eccentric with an odd blend of ‘anthemic’ melody and unexpected moments of pastoral radiance…” and The Guardian calling it “a smart splicing of punchy themes and chord-belting, rock-piano climaxes.”, to UNCUT magazine’s verdict of "the greatest stadium-filling anthems that Coldplay never wrote".
Neil Cowley was literally one of the most listened to pianists on the planet in 2011, playing on Adele’s best-selling album of the decade 21; his signature style is most evident on the single Rolling in the Deep, which was the most broadcast song of the year. Cowley looks set for more of the same in 2012, with recent recording sessions with Brits Critics Choice Emeli Sandé and BBC Sound Of 2012 poll winner Michael Kiwanuka and the release of this fantastic new album.
