Simon Rose saxophone solo
‘Rose transforms the instrument into an orchestra; effect is superseded, or rather transmogrified, moving away from virtuosic display and becoming an essential part of the instrumental language..’
‘free but absolutely logical, the best blend of spontaneity and improvisation imaginable…’ Cadence
Roland Ramanan (trumpet) / Tom Jackson (clarinet) / Daniel Thompson (guitar) trio
Highly thought of London based trio displaying a keen sense of space and intimacy with spirited invention. Credits include John Stevens, London Improviser’s Orchestra, Peter Brotzmann, Keith and Julie Tippet(s) and Paul Dunmall.
Stefan Keune (sax) / John Russell (guitar) duo
Fast reactions and fiery interplay from this long established duo. This, their only UK concert, to be part of an ongoing recording project. Past tours have included Japan, Germany and the UK. Total improvisation without artifice, direct, honest and engaging.
