A soundtrack album of rare quality. Inspired by the directness and hugely emotional content of David Hockney's art, John Harle's score to Hockney is equally direct and engaging.

From a quirky, almost Jaques Tati-esque banjo theme to the exotica of Los Angeles and the jazz basements of 1960s London, this album never fails to entertain and surprise.

After winning both Ivor Novello and Royal Television Society awards in 2013 for 'Best Musical Score' for his music for ‘Lucian Freud - Painted Life’, composer John Harle has followed up with a feature film release on the life of the iconic and captivating Yorkshire artist David Hockney, directed by Randall Wright.

Guitarist John Parricelli, pianist Steve Lodder and percussionist Hugh Wilkinson (all of whom featured in Harle's 'The Tyburn Tree' project with Marc Almond) are fluid and inspired soloists, duetting alongside Harle's own trademark saxophone sound.
