Issued on BBE Music, Reflections is the new album by London-based harp player and composer Alina Bzhezhinska, alongside her HipHarpCollective.
Following up her critically acclaimed debut album "Inspiration" (Ubuntu 2018), Bzhezhinska puts together a second long-player, collaborating with British jazz stars Tony Kofi(Saxophones), Jay Phelps (Trumpet), Julie Walkington (Double Bass) and vocalist VimalaRowe, strongly supported by international talents Mikele Montolli (Electric Bass), Joel Prime(Percussion), Adam Teixeira (Drums) and Ying Xue (Violin & Viola).
Alina creates a unique sound on the harp with layered effects and electronics, combining original works and covers to pay homage to some of jazz, funk and hip-hop's greatest innovators. Throughout the record, she draws from a variety of influences, including the likes of Dorothy Ashby's ‘Afro-Harping', Alice Coltrane's spiritual outputs, Joe Henderson's free-form jazz experimentation, 90s Acid Jazz and Trip-Hop.
"This album is very vibrant and reflects directly on London's multicultural community. We had so much fun making this recording — it truly built up our morale in the middle of the pandemic and I hope our fans will feel this energy too." — Alina Bzhezhinska
