True Colours is the new album by versatile pianist Dave Arch and acclaimed guitarist John Parricelli, two musicians who have known each other and played together since the early days of their careers.
Individually they have worked with a broad range of artists from across the musical spectrum, including Paul McCartney, Joni Mitchell, Alexandre Desplatt, Kenny Wheeler and Charlie Haden amongst many others. Dave is also the Musical Director of numerous TV shows, including BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.
Collaborating on all the compositions, the result is an intimate, organic and atmospheric collection of pieces drawing on their love of jazz, film music, folk and pop. In addition to serving up these highly personal treats, the album also features master percussionist Paul Clarvis throughout, and award-winning vocalist Daisy Chute on two tracks. Beautifully recorded and mixed by ex-Abbey Road Chief Engineer Haydn Bendall – whose painting graces the album cover – this kaleidoscopic music will undoubtedly lift the listener’s spirits.
