cartoon---- with chris biscoe and john pope----alto saxophone and alto clarinet, double bass and drumset ---- a new free jazz-based band, with a malleable fluid melodic line. the trio formed for a concert in newcastle , december 2017 that felt very nice indeed. the trio has something to say. it worked throughout the u.k and last played some concerts in northern italy in december, also recording as a 6 piece band with italians giancarlo schiaffini, walter prati , guido armaroli…,.,,.,.,.it's essentially an acoustic trio, and likes to play between fast low volume new jazz and a european improvising sensibility. there should be a cd due for release later in 2019. this band's great to play in !!
