A forum to develop new ideas and collaborations the band sound moves freely between ambient ECM textures, hard hitting modern jazz and soaring lyricism. With their first album due out later in the year the project features some of Sydney’s finest improvising musicians: Paul Cutlan – Tenor/Soprano Sax + Bass Clarinet, Harry Sutherland – piano, Carl Morgan – Guitar, Hannah James – bass and Jamie Cameron – drums”
