The Peter Franks Group – Leaving This Place pt1

The Peter Franks Group is an instrumental and jazz beat collective from Bournemouth, England. The fresh and crisp flute-driven track ‘Leaving This Place’ is one of the standout tracks off the band’s album Days Past. ‘Inner Most’ is also a moody gem.

“…A real timeless feel to this courtesy of the joint talents of Halsall, Urquhart, Mwamba, Crennell, Maffei and Manners – but the real magic is in the dreamy keyboard work of Peter Franks and his inventive production techniques.”

Julien Marchal is a composer from Bordeaux, France. Insight II is a follow-up to the initial 2015 album of the same name.

The track ‘Insight XX’ rings with a beautiful, smooth piano theme that “takes the listener inside the piano,” he says.

This reminded me of a quote I recently discovered from the naturalist John Muir:

“Most people are on the world, not in it.”

Lovely stuff. Check out the incredible music video and more on Julien’s Bandcamp page.
