about the record

Vega Trails is a new project from double-bassist and composer Milo Fitzpatrick, a founding member of Portico Quartet, and saxophonist Jordan Smart in a richly powerful duo bringing together two powerfully charismatic musicians. The project takes its name from Carl Sagan's science fiction novel 'Contact' and was born out of a desire to bring the elements of bass and melody to the foreground in their rawest form.

“There is so much in just one musician’s sound; the emotional, the intellectual, the vulnerability and power of their character. But often these delicate nuances can be submerged in the quest for a group sound. In Vega Trails I wanted to grant the musicians space to breathe and be heard and for the listener to witness the intimacy and depth of a conversation between two voices, bass and melody. I was also interested in how the limitations would guide both the composition and performance and to push us both to places close to the limits of what we could play, and it is in this place where I believe the character of a musician blossoms and comes forward”.
