Paul Machlis: Bright Field

Paul Machlis (piano, keyboards)
Alasdair Fraser (violin, viola)
Barry Philips (cello)
William Coulter (guitar
)

This expressive and emotional album of primarily original material retains some of the flavour of Paul's acclaimed collaborations with Alasdair Fraser.

"Machlis is a piano player with a delicate and tender touch and a composer of tender and stirring music drawn from a Scottish idiom. Evocative, fluid, warm ...  a joy to listen to." 
—The Galway Edge
