Celebrating the debut album from Corrie Dick "Impossible Things"

" Impossible Things is the debut release from Chaos Collective's young prince of percussion, London-based Corrie Dick and it is a triumphant celebration of genuinely euphoric, sophisticated melodic music. Soaring anthems surge from emotional landscapes awash with exciting grooves and textures.

Corrie's prowess as a unique, emotionally sophisticated composer has been paramount to his diverse original/co-lead projects including power-jazz quartet Blue-Eyed Hawk and songwriter-influenced Little Lions, but here his uninhibited style has flourished to new levels. Corrie has penned a rich diversity of contemporary folk melodies reminiscent of Celtic traditions and at times North African music and arranged them in a perfectly flowing series of modern-day anthems. He has provided, incredibly, a platform for each member of this powerhouse supergroup to flourish organically throughout, notably Alice Zawadzki's vocal drips with mercurial poise on the Alice In Wonderland themed 'Six Impossible Things', Laura Jurd's flowing and impeccably articulated trumpet on the Moroccan-tinged 'Annamarrakech' and saxophonist Joe Wright's passionate self-condemnation on 'Lock Your Heart Up'.
