Listen! favourites Olie Brice and Mark Sanders return to Cambridge in the company of the ICP Orchestra's celebrated reedsman Tobias Delius for an evening of adventurous and exhilarating spontaneous music making.
The trio plays propulsive, joyous, improvised music that ranges from swinging free jazz to timbral and textural explorations. Their debut album, Somersaults, was recorded live and released in 2015 on Two Rivers Records.
Speaking of Tobias Delius recently in The Morning Star, Olie Brice said, 'There's a warmth in everything he plays and a huge love and knowledge of the jazz tradition. He takes from it a personal vocabulary and tone.'
Somersaults' second album, Numerology of Birdsong', recorded live at London's Iklectik Art Lab by Alex Bonney will be released on 10th September on the new West Hill Records label. You can order the album now from the label's Bandcamp page, or buy it at the gig,
