Appearances by

Andy Hamill

Earth to Ether features Theo's flute and alto flute playing more than on any other of Theo's albums and for the first time on one of Theo's albums there will be some vocal tracks. Acclaimed author of "The Rotters Club" and "What a Carve Up" Jonathan Coe has written lyrics for the songs. The album was recorded at the Premises studio, London by Justin Underhill, and mixed by Steven Wilson at No Man's Land. The album features his regular touring band and special guest Richard Sinclair (founding member and vocalist/guitarist/bassist with Canterbury music bands Caravan and Hatfield and the North) Three tracks feature Theo's tenor sax, including a fiery version of King Crimson's 21st Century Schizoid Man. Influenced by 1970's jazz flute, cool jazz, Brazilian songs, Canterbury music, progressive folk, King Crimson, Hubert Laws and a love of melody and lush atmospheres, the album has been very positively received by those who have heard it so far. The album will be released on 33 Records on 18 October in time for Theo's 25 date UK tour with his quartet (see www.theotravis.com - live dates page for tour schedule).

Reviews

 

01/10/2004 The Rough Guide to Jazz

“There’s a consistency and intelligence to Travis’ output that marks him as one of the more intriguing of the current generation of creative musicians”

 

01/10/2004 The Rough Guide to Jazz

"Travis plays with almost savage passion"

 

01/10/2004 Jazz Journal

"A musician with something to say"

 

01/10/2004 MOJO

"A brave and restless talent to watch for"

 

01/10/2004 The Herald

"Theo Travis plays his solos with great assurance, covering the entire range of both instruments with tightly structured phrasing in lenghty, continually building narratives. The excitement of his pay-off lines is heightened by Marc Parnell’s superbly attentive, driving and directive drumming......This is a group whose collective ingenuity and invention consistently satisfies, exhilarates, and surprises."
