Momento is Milligan’s first album since 2008.
The music resulted from meeting Italian bass and drums team Danillo Gallo and U.T. Gandhi on an international project with Colin Steele at Edinburgh Jazz Festival. Milligan enjoyed playing with the Italians so much that, when a Creative Scotland artists bursary allowed him to travel to Cavalicco in the Italian province of Udine, he booked three days in Artesuono recording studio with master engineer Stefano Amerio and invited Gallo and Gandhi to join him.
“Before we started playing,” says Milligan, “I told Danillo and U.T. that if we didn’t even record one complete track, that was fine. This was really just an experiment. It was about letting go and being in the moment.”
Over the two days, the trio recorded everything they played and with the expert recording of Amerio, who has worked on over forty albums for the prestigious ECM Records label, they finished up with twenty tracks, some completely improvised, some Milligan originals and some improvisations based on folk songs.
Momento features seven of those tracks.
