“A musical medicine against the insecurity of our age, and an ode to jazz heroes such as Horace Silver, Benny Golson and Lee Morgan. With a touch of Talk Talk.”
The name of the album ‘Vanishing Point’ refers to the point behind the horizon, where the promise of endless posibilities lies hidden. The road towards this point is the adventure. ‘Vanishing Point’ is ‘a musical road trip’, says Coen.
The tracks on the album are warm, powerfull and positive, with a saturated quartet sound. Musical influences range from ’50s and ’60s artists such as Benny Golson and Lee Morgan, film music from Goldstein and Hermann, to 80s music from Steely Dan and Talk Talk. Coen: “Every composition is a miniature world with it’s own feel and energy. With the ‘classic’ quartet sound I tried to create a sense of positivity, warmth and fun”.
