Jeremy Rose's Earshift music presents The Vampires’ latest release, "Nightjar".
This album brings a fresh perspective on their music in a collaboration with pianist and keyboard player Chris Abrahams. One third of the legendary improvised minimalism trio, The Necks, Chris Abrahams is a great match for the band, bringing an expansive and scintillating approach to their music.
Together since 2005, The Vampires have forged their sound from their travels and musical lives in jazz, improvisation free-diving and the vibrant cultural bleed of bands driven by Caribbean, Persian, Indian, South Korean, West African and Latin beats. The compositions have always been postcards to other Vampires from wherever they were, but have gradually shifted from the early jazz soloing into longer stretches building texture and tone, buoyed on irresistible riffs.
