Biography of Seb Pipe, Seb Pipe's Life Experience

'SEB PIPE’S LIFE EXPERIENCE' has, since its inception in 2006, comprised forward-thinking musicians sharing a desire to create improvised music with its own identity, music which reflects the group’s personalities and interests, as well as the world around them. Life Experience’s music draws its inspiration from Romania, the African diaspora, India and Western Classical music and is forged from lyrical melodies, tight grooves and bold improvisations.
Their critically acclaimed first album ‘Music is Life’ features a diverse array of highly innovative and electrifying compositions inspired by life - blending high intensity grooves, idiosyncratic melodies and raw energy.
'Seb Pipe's Life Experience' recently won the Jazz Services 'Recording and Touring Award'. This award, funded by the 'Arts Council England', has enabled the group to record its second album ‘Shoot for the Stars’ and promote its release on ’33 Records’ via a UK Tour in May 2009.
Press Quotes:
“The talented young altoist Pipe has the kind of self-assured confidence of an emerging star, but the good sense to simply play how he wants to play. While the harmonies are angular and the rhythms fractured, Pipe’s flawless technique and witty ideas make him one to watch.” - Jazzwise Magazine
"I'm impressed..this is good stuff...it’s deep"
- BBC Radio 3 Jazz Line-Up
"distinctive, highly original quartet music, addressed with musicianly verve and commitment by the agile Pipe and his energetically responsive band...a great calling card for a fine, vigorously interactive unit."
- Chris Parker (The Vortex Jazz Club, London)
"It's a group we'll likely be hearing from in 2008."
- John Fordham (The Guardian Newspaper)
“Seb is pushing the boundaries and experimenting with some very innovative concepts…it is individuals like him who move the art form forward.”
- Jean Toussaint
“Yet more evidence, were it needed, of the extraordinary strength in depth of the current UK jazz scene.” – Chris Parker (Vortex Jazz Club)
