Part of the ongoing fundraising efforts for Hundred Years Gallery, this live release of Dirk’s large ensemble!
Great to be a small part of this larger whole:
Very excited that the new Ti/om recording will be played on Radio 3’s Freeness show with Corey Mwamba this week!
ALL UPCOMING GIGS ARE CANCELLED!
Nothing’s happening because of Covid19. Stay safe everyone.
Nice review from Poland!
What a day! So much great music! Anyway, here’s some pictures of *me*!
Reviewed in London Jazz News:
“Saxophonist Tom Ward plays with that same vitality as Colin Webster but a touch more of a warm jazz sense. His technical assuredness in using squeaks and harmonics within and around his tonal phrasing led neatly into some almost Rollins-like punchy lyricism. Ward moved over to flute a couple of times which varied the texture (keeping with a sixties vibe) but I think it’s a newer thing for him, with a shorter prosody of phrasing. On sax, he really talks. His pedalling sax with Williams’s bowed bass drew the performance into a powerful doomy sense of a happy end of the world.
The automated translator says: “Such diversity of approaches makes this proposal for electroacoustic improvisation a richness that distinguishes it from others more parameterized in the Portuguese and international contexts, which is an asset when we verify that even in this area a “mainstream” has been installed.”
