Mark PringleThe third release from Stoney Lane hits the stores today – we’re very excited to bring you the wonderful album ‘A Moveable Feast’, from the brilliant young pianist Mark Pringle. Featuring his eclectic 12-piece ensemble of strings, horns and rhythm section, Mark’s music is inspired by diverse influences including Olivier Messiaen, Ernest Hemingway and Django Bates, and is distinctly shaped by his time living in Paris.  You can read more about the album here.

A series of outstanding reviews continue to roll in, with Mark touring the UK through to the end of the month, following a BBC Radio 3 broadcast of a live recording from the Late Night Proms, alongside landing in the Guardian Guide ‘Pick of the Week’

Mark Pringle Guardian Guide September 2015

“A brilliantly mature and restrained piece of music that sounds thoroughly original and big in scope … outstanding writing and arranging … beautifully performed … thought-provoking and highly rewarding listening.  A really outstanding achievement from a musician with a very bright future indeed.”
Peter Bacon – The Jazz Breakfast

“Ambition to match his talent … a striking writer and orchestrator as well as a fine keyboard player.  The lasting impression is the variety and the skill in creating fresh orchestral effects that Pringle deploys so well. He uses the wealth of possibilities … sparkling contributions on piano … his impressive CD is a calling card from someone who surely deserves opportunities to create music for even larger forces in future.”
Jon Turney – London Jazz News

“An adventurous instrumental journey of thoroughly original music, utilising a wealth of ideas from the composer’s opulent imagination, brilliantly creating picturesque soundscapes … a compelling style and energy … The arrangements are stunning. There is a deep, dark, lyrical beauty to this … a veritable feast for the ears.  ‘A Moveable Feast’ is an intriguing album, one which heralds a new voice in jazz. Mark Pringle has put together a recording that is both expressive and innovative, with his compositions exuding character … a musical vision that is quirky, yet positively original.”
Mike Gates – UK Vibe

“Imagine if Vaughan Williams had gone into the forest to sample the wild mushrooms, and whilst writing his Symphony Number 1, Gustav Mahler had discovered jazz, this might have been the outcome.” – UK Vibe

Mark Pringle 'A Moveable Feast' albums“’A Moveable Feast’ is an ambitious album that overall succeeds very well. Pringle and his musicians conjure up a fascinating array of sounds and textures and the balance between structure and freedom is always a constant source of interest.”
Ian Mann – The Jazz Mann


“Place your order now.  To achieve results as good as on this recording at the age of twenty four is no mean feat.
 Subtlety is a recurring aspect; Monk, deceptively simple/complex, so too Pringle … it is only a matter of time before he becomes a household name.  Mark Pringle’s A Moveable Feast comes highly recommended. The recording is on the short list for ‘CD of the Year’ and hearing Pringle live should be a priority.”
Bebop Spoken Here

This album is full of vivid impressions … as satisfying as a rich Parisian dinner … definitely worth catching, this young pianist could become the British Brad Mehldau, his many projects an indicator of a very great and mature talent.”
Mary Leamington – OnlyJazzBlog
