Thank you for the great turnouts and generous support in Germany and London for the nonet performances earlier this month. Here's a nice hi-resolution excerpt of the WDR performance.
News on the updated Live page about dates later in the year, including with Joe McPhee/Decoy and the Louis Moholo-Moholo Unit and Quartet...also some nice things in the advanced planning stage, of which, more soon.
I recently contributed to a short piece for Jazz on 3 to celebrate Henry Threadgill's 70th birthday: for a short while, you can hear it here. And available for a week from Monday February 24th, you can hear a broadcast of the Nick Malcolm Quartet, recorded last year at the Vortex, also on Jazz on 3 - that's here.
Finally, some more nice videos to share of a couple of projects. Here is a non-album take of the title track from the new Ensemble album. And here and here you can see The Convergence in recent action.

Reviews now beginning to come in for the two new albums. Please do check out these three, at The Guardian, All About Jazz and Bebop Spoken Here.
Thank you also to the Free Jazz Blog for this review of Song Singular, and this review of Step Wide, Step Deep.
And please do check out this review of the nonet at Cafe Oto: 'it's difficult to think of an experimental, contemporary piece more suffused with the ecstasy of musical revelation.'
