Sam Rapley’s “Fabled”
Fabled formed in 2014 when saxophonist/clarinetist, Sam Rapley, brought together a select handful of Britain’s most exciting young musicians to play his original music. This close-knit group of friends have since found a unified and unique way of interacting with each other, born through years of collaborative music making. Taking inspiration from Debussy, Tom Jobim, Sarah Vaughan and Bon Iver, the group explores the wealth of textures, harmonies and grooves available in the traditional jazz quintet setting. Heavily influenced by music for film, and the relationship between music and storytelling, Fabled are always searching for their own new ways to tell the classic, age- old stories.
