A double bill to celebrate the release of Sloth Racket’s new album ‘Dismantle Yourself’ on the Luminous Label. Part of the band’s UK tour: slothracket.co.uk/tour
Sloth Racket is a band of UK improvisers led by baritone saxophonist Cath Roberts, with Sam Andreae on alto saxophone, Anton Hunter on guitar, Seth Bennett on bass and Johnny Hunter on drums. They play Cath’s compositions, combining written fragments with graphic notation to explore the balance between freedom and structure. The band formed in 2015 when Jazz North East invited Cath to present a new project at Gateshead International Jazz Festival. Since then they have toured in the UK at least once every year as well as appearing at London Jazz Festival, Brighton Alternative Jazz Festival and LUME Festival. They have released three studio albums on the Luminous label, a live album on Tombed Visions, and one studio album as extended lineup Favourite Animals.
Dee Byrne & Olie Brice
Dee Byrne and Olie Brice have been playing together for years in Dee’s band Entropi. Recently they have also started doing completely improvised gigs together, both in trio with Andrew Lisle and now for the first time tonight as a duo. As well as Entropi, Dee is in bands including Favourite Animals, Deemer and Now It Can Be Told, and Olie runs his own Quintet and works with the likes of Mark Sanders, Tobias Delius, Paul Dunmall and Rachel Musson.
