Odd-time palpitations and Eastern tinged melodic lines interwoven with heady improv make up the sound of this fresh London based band.

Their debut album ‘Ignored Advice’ released in March 2022 features all original compositions that stem from bassist composer Chris Hyde-Harrison’s love of jazz, contemporary-classical and various world musics.

Collectively the band share a love of contemporary jazz that includes the music of Ben Wendel, Ari Hoenig and Mark Turner.
