Sloth Racket is a quintet of UK improvisers led by baritone saxophonist Cath Roberts, with Anton Hunter on guitar, Sam Andreae on tenor saxophone, Seth Bennett on bass and Johnny Hunter on drums. The group play Cath's compositions, combining written fragments with graphic notation to explore the balance between freedom and structure. The results range across musical territories from fiery free jazz, to minimal improv textures, to deep grooves.
Sloth Racket's second album Shapeshifters will be released on 12th June. Copies will be on sale at the gig, or you can pre-order from Luminous today.
Matching Sloth Racket t-shirts are also available!
