Rik Wright’s Fundamental Forces: Subtle Energy

Guitarist Rik Wright creates some clever tones by bringing in clarinetist-bass clarinetist James Dejoie along with Geoff Harper/b and Greg Campbell/dr for this collection of originals. The sounds flow easily, with warm breezes from Dejoie mixing with Campbell’s tender traps on “Butterfly Effect” while pastels are added by guitar and clarinet on the title track. The strings get misty as they veer around the bass clarinet on the mellow “Nonchalant” and the team delivers an irresistible cadence as Wright charms the socks off on “Patience.” Lots of sounds you’ll want to return to on this short and sweet release.
