Sitka Sun – All The Way West
Written by Josh Aitman on 13th January 2021
Our furthest afield host Patrick Murphy and his ensemble, Sitka Sun, come through with their latest album; All The Way West
Hailing from Oakland California, you may have heard Patrick gracing our airwaves month in, month out, following his first appearance on our Lockdown Live Lounge back in 2020. The incredibly gifted composer and performer now comes through with a stunning and carefully composed instrumental jazz album, described as “a spaced-out contemplation on the human condition.”
All The Way West takes a step forward, developing on his previous self titled EP moving “deeper into the intricacies of compassion and the adventurous spirit of improvisation.” The 32 minute LP “exists in the intersection of rhythmic prowess, psychedelic experimentation and jazz sensibility” and demonstrates Murphy’s impeccable compositional abilities and ear for rhythmic complexity.
