Amanda Whiting - Lost in Abstraction
Vinyl LP pressing. The eagerly anticipated follow-up to last year's incredibly well-received debut album 'After Dark, Welsh harpist Amanda Whiting is back with another glorious offering. The trio is joined again by the mesmerising lines of flautist Chip Wickham, resuming their conversation reminiscent of Dorothy Ashby and Frank Wess. 'Lost in Abstraction' was written during a period of the unknown when Whiting, like most, explored her own sense of self. The world paused, with no timeframe, and the fragility of life was laid bare. A time when humanity was left searching for purpose. Freedom and the dependable structures of familiarity were dissolved in most aspects of life. But music stayed constant. Creativity kept weaving it's thread, connecting music and it's makers in an indissoluble bond.
