Recorded in Abbey Road Studio 1, (almost a second home to Paul), Starry Starry Night is a covers album and the sound of two musicians totally in tune with each other and their own musicality.
Paul Clarvis says:
“This is the closest I’ve come to getting to what I think is the heart of the music. People go on about groove, but I don’t think ‘groove’ is the right word. It’s the ‘feeling,’ and you learn to play with feeling by getting right inside the music.”
“All I’ve ever tried to do is play four crotchets that sounded and felt good. And that album is the closest I’ve got to being half-way there, and I’m still working on it.”
“Everything seems to be about being complicated these days. I’m just trying to turn whatever I’ve been given into music. You turn up and do the best you can, finding the simplest way through. Clarity is what they’re looking for, that’s what I’ve learned anyway!”
