    MOMENTARILY – THE NEW ALBUM FROM PETER FAIRCLOUGH & HAYLEY YOUELL Momentarily – a collection of 12 beautiful and emotionally charged songs from the partnership of Peter Fairclough & Hayley Youell featuring the extraordinarily melodic Fred Thelonious Baker (bass & guitar) and the rarely heard but substantial jazz talents of Iona's Dave Bainbridge (keyboards & guitar). Recorded & produced by Nigel Pease and with beautiful artwork by Stephen Joseph Hemingway, this CD will be of interest to those who love the songwriting craft, jazz without rules & those who may be missing touches of prog in their audio-diet!The CD comes in a gatefold cover and is accompanied by an exquisite 16-page booklet of Hayley's lyrics."Momentarily is a quiet, delicate masterpiece at the border between jazz and rock. Unusual, intense, while catchy and melodic; complex, challenging and yet simply enjoyable.” Volkmar Mantei, www.ragazzi-music.de"Anyone who appreciates exceptional musicianship and well written songs would do well to pick up a copy. Definitely recommended" Dave Taylor, www.spiritualprog.com "what we have on Momentarily is carefully crafted songs which are in turn allowed to breathe, whether by dynamic or performance, improvisation or structure." Bob Mulvey, www.dprp.net Peter Fairclough has appeared with Mike Walker, Keith Tippett, John Harle, Ute Lemper, Mike Westbrook, The Bournemouth Sinfonietta, Alan Barnes and many others!
