Forthcoming releases…

Got news of a few recent recordings that look like coming out…

  • The first Catatumbo album should be on it’s way this October, coming out on Babel.  Catatumbo is the trio of Ingrid Laubrock, Javier Carmona and me.  Alex Bonney did a great job of recording us at the Vortex on our tour last November, and that some of that recording will be coming out on LP, CDR and digital download pretty soon.  You can hear a bit of the concert (that won’t be on the album) on the ‘listen’ page of this website.  We’re looking at touring April next year, details on here as they materialise…
  • The recording Mikolaj Trzaska, Mark Sanders and I did last May seems to have found a home as well – should be coming out on No Business sometime next year.  Another live recording, this time recorded by Chris Trent, in Birmingham.
  • And finally, the Nick Malcolm Quartet (with Alexander Hawkins and Mark Whitlam) did a couple of days recording recently.  We had a lot of fun, and again Alex Bonney got a great sound.  Hopefully that’ll be mixed and on its way to labels pretty soon!

Neil Metcalfe & Olie Brice – Brackish

I’m pleased to announce the release of a duo album with the great flautist Neil Metcalfe.  The album is called ‘brackish’, and is on FMR.  It was beautifully recorded, mixed and mastered by Sherry Ostapovitch.

Neil and I have been playing together every week for about a year and a half now.  We initially  worked together in a quartet with Mark Hanslip on tenor and Tony Marsh on drums, and also did a quartet gig with Evan Parker and Tony Marsh.  We decided to start playing as an acoustic duo, and the process of developing that together has been one of the most rewarding musical experiences I’ve had.

If you’d like to hear where the process had reached last August, you can buy a copy either from FMR, or directly from me by clicking here (£10.50 inc postage within the UK, for international postage please email olie at riseup.net):
