The music combines different strands of the jazz tradition – the groove-based, African-influenced jazz of Dave Holland and Steve Coleman with a harmonically driven, contemporary European sound – to create a vibrant musical fusion of styles: looping poly-rhythmic patterns derived from African tribal drumming, M-Base funk grooves and freer, more open explorations of time exist in a harmonic soundworld that takes in everything from modal jazz and blues to the raw dissonance of Arnold Schoenberg and twentieth-century classical influences.

Performing with pianist Jonathan Taylor are renowned flautist Eddie Parker (Loose Tubes, Django Bates' Delightful Precipice) as well as three rising stars of the London scene: guitarist Jez Franks, bass player Dave Mannington and drummer Ben Reynolds.

01/01/2003 Bath Evening Chronicle

"Being and Becoming…a wonderful album by an exceptional player"

 

01/01/2003 Straight No Chaser, vol 2, issue 24

"With records like ‘Being and Becoming’ it hopefully won’t be too long before Jazz from this side of the Atlantic gets its long-overdue props"
