Isn’t it strange how small the world can be sometimes? I had the most fortunate and serendipitous moment when I discovered that Neil Cowley, the musician behind Pretz (my latest obsession), is none other than the former keyboardist for my favorite band Zero 7. TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE! (No wonder I fell in love with the whole album straight away – it’s fantastic!) Anyway, if you feel like some great instrumental downtempo music give “Chapel Stile” a listen. Cowley really has a gift for composition and playfulness.
