William Ellis’s One LP project – previously covered here – involves ‘a study of the artist portrayed with a favourite recording. Each portrait is accompanied by a short interview that explores the album’s meaning and value for the subject.’
William photographed Jack Bruce with the album of his choice at Band on the Wall in Manchester in March 2011. Jack Bruce’s reasons for having chosen it are poetic:
JACK BRUCE One LP – OLIVIER MESSIAEN: L’ASCENSION: (THOMAS TROTTER).
“It’s called L’ascension by Olivier Messiaen who was a French composer I have loved for most of my life. Why I love his compositions is he shows that music has always existed. Humans only stole it. We borrowed it – but it’s in nature, It holds the universe together, ask any skylark or ask any blackbird they’ll tell you.”
