Short Stories


Artist: Fabled
Label: Pictor Records
RRP: £13.99
Release Date: 28 September 2018

Formed in 2014, Fabled is the brainchild of saxophonist/clarinettist, Sam Rapley. Short Stories, their new album, is exactly as the title suggests. with the band interpreting a collection of short stories tackling subjects including life, love and death...

Short Stories is a Jazz album for people who don't normally like jazz. While there's enough quality material to appeal to traditional jazz fans, this is melodic and inviting enough to not be off putting to those that normally shy away from the genre.

In places this 8 track (53 min, 20 sec) album is cinematic in both scope and delivery, and you'll find it hard not to be drawn into the band's world. This is a release you'll get instant gratification from, and still be able to dig out for years to come to help blow off the old cobwebs. Beautiful stuff.
