The Freefall quartet are accustomed to providing a professional and elegant mix of music. The ensemble blends styles from improvised rhythmic grooves to soulful jazz, blues and latin standards whilst introducing subtle blends from middle eastern to reggae influences, adding an interesting variety of musical flavours and textures.
Freefall specialise in producing gentle acoustic and ambient music for red carpet entrances into art galleries and function centres as well as providing full sound and equipment in the main guest arena.
The ensemble is considerate, adaptable and flexible to their client’s needs and requests. Versatility is Freefall’s strength combining many years of experience. The band members dress to suit the occassion whether it be in elegant suits or funky street attire.
The ensembles musical diversity is expressed throughout familiar standard tunes such as Rodrigo’s Spanish guitar Concerto de Aranjuez, jazz ballads like ‘Little Sunflower’ and ‘So What’ to vocal ballads from Sting’s ‘Fragile’, latin guitar tunes from Santana’s ‘Europa’ and their interpretation of Jimmi Hendrix ‘Little Wing’. You may hear familiar muted trumpet melodies blending throughout smooth jazz grooves reflecting moods of Miles Davis and Chet Baker. Later on as the evening matures the ensemble will create a more lively upbeat vibe from latin and funk dance grooves drawing on influences from James Brown and Joe Cocker to Herbie Hancock and St. Germein.
Freefall combine an elegant blending of instrumentation and sounds from diverse musical styles. The ensemble comprises of and uses the warmth and depth of double bass, the grit and texture of fender rhodes keyboard, a soulful blending of blues and latin guitar, spatial muted trumpet and voice with subtle effects, haunting Irish flute and unobtrusive percussion providing shades of light and colour from a palette of sounds.
