'Brice makes the entire body of his bass sing... as purposeful as any of the great jazz bassists' ~ Brian Morton
A trio of three great improvisers. Rachel Musson and Olie Brice have a long-standing duo (and have recently released the album 'Tapered Arms Point into the Wind'), Mark Sanders is featured on Rachel's album 'Tatterdemalion', and Mark and Olie have worked together in trios and quartets with such improv legends as Tobias Delius, Paul Dunmall, Even Parker, Ken Vandermark and Mikolaj Trzaska.
So when Olie was approached by the South Coast Jazz Festival in 2017 he proposed this combination, which went so well that he immediately started looking for more opportunities for the group. This gig will be their third outing. As Olie himself says, 'a new improvising trio that should have happened much earlier!'

Listen! is run by Carol Garrison and Graham Lee, enthusiastic gig-goers and avid listeners for many years. Our aim is to complement Cambridge's lively music scene by giving musicians who might not be heard elsewhere in the city an opportunity to play for an enthusiastic audience with open ears. Our main focus is on new, original and improvised music, but that's not all!
