Article 11 – brand new 11-piece, commissioned for Manchester Jazz Festival 2014, playing on and around my compositions. (name taken from this, which seemed to fit with an improvising large-ensemble)
Beats & Pieces Big Band – 14-piece band led by Ben Cottrell
Ripsaw Catfish – duo with Cath Roberts on baritone, playing a load of improvised stuff with occasional snippets of compositions.
265 Quartet – chamber-jazz group with Graham South (flugelhorn), Rod Skipp (cello) & Ben Cottrell (clarinet)
Caulbearers – funk/soul-ish band led by Damien Mahoney feat. the vocal talents of Julie Gordon. Part of the Single Cell Collective
Takahashi’s Shellfish Concern – performance art trio with Angela Guyton & Rodrigo Constanzo 2008-2013 – fantastic artists (and people). I learnt a lot from them during my time as a part of TSC and I continue to since.
and a few other improvised bits and bobs
