Pre-order for release date!

The award-winning young pianist and composer Mark Pringle is to release his absorbing debut album ‘A Moveable Feast’ this September, featuring his eclectic 12-piece ensemble

Inspired by diverse influences including Olivier Messiaen, Ernest Hemingway and Django Bates, 24 year-old pianist and composer Mark Pringle is to release his debut album, A Moveable Feast, on Stoney Lane Records on 18th September 2015 – an adventurous instrumental recording of original music, distinctly shaped by his time living in Paris.

Touring extensively throughout the UK with both his trio and dynamic twelve-piece band this autumn, Mark launches A Moveable Feast with 17 dates, including the BBC Proms, broadcast by BBC Radio 3, the Manchester Jazz Festival and Southbank Centre.

Falling in love with the music of Bill Evans and Oscar Peterson at a young age, Mark recorded an acclaimed album with his former teacher and renowned pianist John Law at just 19, going on to win a Peter Whittingham Jazz Award earlier this year.

A nod to Hemingway’s memoirs of Paris, A Moveable Feast comprises eight of Mark’s striking compositions, drawing on themes of nature, literature, the chaos of cities, and the lives of people who inhabit them.

Mark Pringle - A Moveable FeastOpening with A Real Bombshell (Messiaen’s reaction on first seeing a score of Debussy), the recording features strings, horns and rhythm section surrounding Mark’s compelling piano.  The brooding Hasha’s Theme, written late one night in Paris, contrasts to the joyful Happy Plants Pt.II, whilst the mysterious Ode To The Trees explores woodland creatures and strange beasts, composed after an adventure to the great Parisian park, Bois de Boulogne.

A Moveable Feast is the third release from Stoney Lane, following albums from the Mike Fletcher Trio and TG Collective

“…the young independent label Stoney Lane Records… clearly a label with a keen eye and ear for quality.” – All About Jazz
