Martin Speake alto saxophone
Alyson Cawley tenor saxophone/clarinet
Rob Luft guitar
Will Glaser drums/percussion
A newly formed project that is a pared-down version of Martin Speake’s previous 7-piece group ‘Fever Pitch’. This was formed to reflect Martin’s interest in rhythmic music from around the world including Arabic, Indian and Turkish influences.
In Martin’s words, “I felt I wanted to play music that is very immediate for audiences and is simple harmonically, groove-based and the improvising consists of primarily melodic and rhythmic development rather than based on chord changes.”
“Martin Speake is one of the most interesting and rewarding alto saxophonists now playing jazz on any continent” (Thomas Conrad, Jazz Times)
