Mopomoso’s 25th anniversary afternoon sessions continue with three very different sets from the wonderful world of free improvisation.

John Rangecroft (sax) / Dave Tucker (guitar) / Marcio Mattos (bass) / Mark Sanders (drums) quartet

group one rangecroft jjppeegg

Highly respected reedsman Rangecroft, here on tenor saxophone, leading his own quartet which promises melodic and rhythmic invention of a high calibre. With three of the UK’s finest providing a propulsive energy, a great way to open proceedings.

Matilda Rolfsson (perc) / Hannah Marshall (cello) / Julie Kjaer (sax) trio

h,j and m

Outstanding Danish saxophonist, British cellist and Norwegian percussionist join forces in an ever changing trialogue full of ideas and invention, brimming with energy and a genuine sense of fun. Delightful!

Henry Lowther (trumpet) / John Russell (guitar) duo

h and j peggy

The last set of the Mopomoso Red Rose series was played by this long standing partnership. A poised and very open duo who are unaverse to risk taking while sharing a mutual respect and understanding for each other’s music. Their regular trio with violinist Satoko Fukuda plays later in the year so this is a rare chance to catch these two fine musicians in a duo.
