 A rare appearance - only the second of 2015 - from this superb band led by sax player and musical explorer Martin Archer.  Comprising some of the most energetic and independently minded creative musicians in the North.  Inspired by the jazz avant garde, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Leo Smith and Anthony Braxton, the music is orchestrated and percussive, with strong links to jazz and blues, and open spaces for improvisation.

 

This gig celebrates the release of second CD Bad Tidings From Slackwater Drag, which picked up 4 star reviews from Jazzwise and All About Jazz reviewers.
