Oslo



I'm playing two gigs in Oslo this week. The Norwegian scene has been a constant source of inspiration for me for the last 10 years or more, so I'm thrilled to be playing there for the first time.

On Weds 22nd, I'm playing in a trio with Stian Larsen (guitar) and Brage Tormaenen (drums) at Pizdets.

On Thurs 23rd, I'm playing with Dead Neanderthals at Maksitaksi, in a double-bill with the incredible Burning Tree (Dag Stiberg & Dag Erik Knedal Andersen).

Viscera - Available Now


'Viscera' - my new duo album with Mark Holub is now available on CD and download from New Atlantis Records, and also direct from us via our bandcamp page.

The album was recorded in one day at the notorious Dropout Studios in South London. No discussion was had before takes, and no pre-arranged ideas were presented, with the exception of the last track - a version of Roscoe Mitchell's 'Chant'. The album is pure, in-the-moment, high-energy, free jazz!
