Very happy to share that the esteemed jazz writer and radio presenter Alyn Shipton detailed review of Polar Waters has been published in the June 2023 edition of Jazzwise

First pre-release from Polar Waters is now available to stream

Deception Island, the first pre-release from our upcoming album Polar Waters is now available to stream. Johannes Mann and Marc Doffey are featured soloists and it’s awesome to be able to share the first part of this project.

The composition is inspired by Catherine Fauld’s poem Deception Island, whose travels to the antarctic and arctic have informed her work.

In just under a month’s time my octet will be doing a small series of concerts in the UK.
