In anticipation of our gig at LUME we’ve posted some small samples of sounds online for your listening pleasure:
UPDATE: We had a really fun time playing! Photo courtesy of LUME…
A few nice concerts in the coming months:
This band’s first gig was at Jazz at the Salisbury way back in Sept 2012, I think the acoustic really suits this line-up so it should be a great gig.
Part of a series of gigs Chris Dowding is putting on at St Paul’s church near Marylebone, I’m really excited to progress the menagerie band & compositions here and not at all phased that it’s on Friday the 13th… Oooo-eerrrr….
I’ll be substituting for the amazing Simon Prince in Anton Hunter’s large ensemble project Article XI.
A brand-new trio project for 2015, featuring Sam Andreae on tenor saxophone, Richard Knight on no-input mixer & myself on alto saxophone, this unique line-up provides a fascinating palette for improvisation.
Another new trio featuring Matilda Rolfsson playing a unique bass drum & percussion setup, alongside Tim Fairhall on double bass & myself on bass clarinet/flute. This group builds on and extends the sonic palette that Tim & I have been working on as Ti/om.
Some recordings of us playing at LUME & at home:
Two lovely Ti/om gigs this week, we’re both looking forward to doing a studio recording of the duo in a couple of days time. In the meantime, here are a couple of photos and a soundcloud of the Lume gig:
The Mechanical Mindset featuring Dave O’Brien will be hitting North London’s Salisbury Hotel on Green Lanes, alongside the Josef Stout Sextet.
8:30pm at The Salisbury Hotel, 1 Grand Parade, Green Lanes, London N4 1JX
A new collaboration has its first outing at Trio Riot‘s Vortex gig. After Trio Riot’s set, they will be augmented by a further six saxophone players (including myself) for a total of eight saxophones. Chaos ensues.
Ti/om will be playing at Dalston’s Servant Jazz Quarters as one of three Brockley-centric improvising duos. With the other duos Ripsaw Catfish (feat. Anton Hunter & Cath Roberts) & the duo of Colin Webster with Graham Dunning it promises to be a great night!
I have a couple of nice gigs in the coming months:
We’re playing at Ryan’s Bar in Stoke Newington, supporting SPILL KIT.
Cath Robert’s Quadraceratops will be a set as part of Jez Nelson’s Jazz In The Round series, at The Cockpit, Gateforth Street, Marylebone, London NW8 8EH.
A new improvising duo project with myself and Tim Fairhall (double bass) will be doing a double-bill with the Colin Webster/Mark Holub duo at a new night run by Cath Roberts & Dan Paton.
