Chris Biscoe & Allison Neale “Two of a Mind”
April 10 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm15.00£
Exploring afresh the freewheeling, wonderfully melodic interpretations of standard material recorded 50 years ago by Gerry Mulligan and Paul Desmond on Blues in Time and Two of a Mind, this new band promises to evoke the spirit of these classic recordings while giving free reign to the personalities of the musicians.
Featuring Chris Biscoe – Baritone sax, Allison Neale – alto sax, Colin Oxley – guitar , Matt Fishwick – drums, Marianne Windham – bass
“Two saxophonists, Chris Biscoe and Allison Neale, revisit the music of Gerry Mulligan and Paul Desmond. The baritone-and-alto interplay of this classic late 50s-early 60s partnership had the rare distinction of being both clever and tuneful, with touches of wit. The trouble was, they only made two albums together. Now, with perfect rapport, and a positively uncanny grasp of this elusive idiom, Biscoe and Neale have come up with more, including two Biscoe originals. The playing is immaculate” Dave Gelly, The Observer, ****
