Some exciting things on the Horizon. In mid-April, I'll be heading to Umeå in Sweden, where I'll be performing on a fantastic bill of new jazz from around Europe: this is as part of the amazing 12 Points festival.
Also in April, I'm in residence at Cafe Oto for two nights with the great Joe McPhee; and later in the month, begin a string of dates with maestro Louis Moholo-Moholo. This is with the Quartet and the Unit; but fear not...the duo returns later in the year!
Lookout too - more news soon - for new releases with Louis, with Nick Malcolm, and a reissue of 'Spontaneous Combustion' with Joe McPhee, complete with bonus material.
Alexander Hawkins (solo piano): Song Singular. Streaming/download available at this link. Read an early review here.
Also here - the third album of the Ensemble - Step Wide, Step Deep. Available for streaming/download here...and please do drop in on this video, put together by the fantastic Matt Mead.
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.'
