Nice review of the Ma/ti/om review from Salt Peanuts:
“The tension between the three musicians, as the delicate balance, add a strange dramatic effect that deepens the dark, suggestive atmosphere of this piece. Impressive debut.”.
Much fun to be had in Manchester, and sunnier than in London too!

Obviously, I’ve played with Seth & Anton before, but this was the first time ever playing as a trio – and in front of a large (& enthusiastic) audience at a fundraiser for the Brighton Alternative Jazz Festival 2016! Great photos of the evening by Agata Urbaniak:
First outing of a new collaborative project with Martin Pyne (vibes) and Ed Riches (guitar), alongside Deemer and Cath Roberts.
I’ll be playing tenor sax with Anton Hunter’s awesome Article XI project.
Another new collaborative trio, this time with Seth Bennett (double bass) and Anton Hunter (guitar) organised especially in support of the awesome Brighton Alternative Jazz Festival. Also on the bill are some very exciting things, including a set from improvising guitarist Ian Brighton.
Dr Graeme Wilson lectures, hopefully illuminated with musical creations in duo with Adam Fairhall (piano).
A duo set with Tim Fairhall (double bass) as part of a Raw Tonk showcase night in our current homeland of South-East London
As part of the MJF listings announced today, is this lovely event / lecture / gig thing that I’m doing. Graeme Wilson will be doing the talking, and Adam Fairhall and me will be doing improvising! Should be a really interesting afternoon!
3pm Friday 29th July at the Portico Library, Manchester. More details on the Manchester Jazz Festival website.
Now available to pre-order from Raw Tonk Records!
Ma/ti/om is the trio of Matilda Rolfsson (percussion), Tim Fairhall (double bass) and myself (bass clarinet & flute). We did some gigs in early 2015, and the trio immediately worked really well, so very pleased to be able to make available this recording of the group!
Many thanks to everyone that came down to the sax quartet’s live recording session at Hundred Years Gallery, it was such a special night! Really excited about how the results are shaping up!
Here’s what it looked like mid-flow…
