Continuing with the trio format for his second album as leader, Latchin is supported by a first-call London rhythm section - Dario di Lecce and Josh Morrison on double bass and drums respectively. Long-time collaborators, the trio have developed a unique sound: a hard-swinging 1950s aesthetic married with the contemporary vision of Latchin’s compositions.
The Moon and I captures a moment in time from the composer’s evolving life. As a new father, his writing is inspired by his growing family: Arthur Go; Pippy’s Delight; Brigi, My Dear. Even the title of his Art Blakey tribute, Peek a Bu, has a childlike twist. These four originals are accompanied by seven unique arrangements of well known jazz standards in his inimitable style.
