I’ve just received copies of two new releases by trumpet-led bands that I’m in – ‘Halda Ema’ by the Alex Bonney Quartet and ‘Life on the Edge’ by Loz Speyer’s Inner Space. Very pleased to be part of both!
Alex’s band also includes James Allsopp on bass clarinet and Jeff Williams on drums. You can find it here: https://loopcollective.bandcamp.com/album/halda-ema
Inner Space is a quintet (with Chris Biscoe, Rachel Musson and Gary Willcox) and can be found here: http://www.leorecords.com/?m=select&id=CD_LR_782
We’ve got a couple of gigs coming up with Inner Space, at the Old Fire Station in Hadleigh, Essex on the 7th April and at the Bulls Head in Barnes on the 10th May
Here’s a live recording of my Quintet, the final gig of our tour last year. We’re playing my piece ‘Red Honey, Yellow Honey’, which will be on my forthcoming quintet album ‘Day After Day’. The new album was recorded a couple of days after this gig, and will be released this June on the Babel label. Album launch on June 14th…
After various delays, my duo album with Achim Kaufmann, ‘Of Tides’, is released. You can hear or even buy it here:
We got a 4.5 star review on AllAboutJazz – “Overall, their playing together is highly reminiscent of players who know each other’s playing inside-out after decades performing together—but we must remember that this recording comes from the early days of their time together. Yet, if this music were wine, it would not be fruity and fresh but full-bodied, mellow and mature. It certainly whets the appetite for further recordings of Brice and Kaufmann together”
We’ll be playing duo in Oslo on the 23rd of May (Blow Out), and then trio in Stockholm with Susana Santos Silva on the 24th (Glenn Miller Cafe)
