SM0261: Pure Imagination

Jazz Harp Series:
Leslie Bricusse & Anthony Newley's "Pure Imagination"
arranged for pedal harp - Ben Creighton Griffiths

Cover ImagePure Imagination was written by Bricusse & Newley for the 1971 musical film "Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory" an adaptation of Roald Dahl's story "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory." The film starred Gene Wilder who sings "Pure Imagination" when the children first enter the 'factory' but an instrumental version is used in the main opening title music. This current instrumental version has been arranged for solo jazz pedal harp by Benjamin Creighton Griffiths.

Another wonderful jazz arrangement from the 14 year old harpist who while predominantly a classical harpist, taught by Catrin Finch and mentored by Ann Griffiths, has also earned a reputation as an accomplished jazz musician. He has studied with Julian Martin for the last seven years and in September 2010 as well as publishing the first volumes of his Jazz Harp Series Ben edited Julian’s “Five Studies in improvised music for pedal harp” also published by Creighton’s Collection.

“I am eternally grateful for the support and encouragement I have received from so many harpists world wide but for the jazz I would particularly like to thank Jakez François, Deborah Henson-Conant, Park Stickney and Julian Martin” Ben Creighton Griffiths
