Following the success of their eponymous EP in 2015, Fabled Trio released their debut album, Short Stories, to widespread critical acclaim in 2018. Drawing inspiration from Debussy, Tom Jobim, Tigran Hamasyan and Bon Iver, the music of Fabled explores the wealth of textures, harmonies and grooves available in the traditional jazz quintet setting. Heavily influenced by music for film and the relationship between music and storytelling, they are always searching for their own new ways to tell the classic, age-old stories.
Fabled Trio are joined by special guest Laura Jurd, who has developed a formidable reputation as one of the most distinctive and creative composer-performers to emerge from the UK in recent years.
‘Fabled’s every piece has its own melodic twists and turns, creating a series of real musical page-turners.’ All About Jazz
‘Rapley proves to be a sensitive and adaptable composer, his ability to craft calming melodies and rich textures brings an emotional weight and modernity to the majority of these recordings.’ – Mojo Magazine
