After a great duo set last month with Hannah Marshall, Alex Bonney returns to LUME this week with his own band. As LUME regulars will tell you, Alex is well-known on the London improv/jazz scene, co leading a variety of projects including Leverton Fox, Splice and BABs. He has a critically acclaimed improvising duo with bassist Dave Kane and appears frequently as a sideman in several London based bands such as Brass Mask, Golden Age of Steam, World Sanguine Report, Nostalgia 77 and more. Joining him in the trio are Olie Brice (recently sighted at LUME in Stolen Project and playing duo with Fumi Okiji) and world-renowned drummer Jeff Williams.

In the second set, the group will be joined by multi-instrumentalist and Golden Age Of Steam leader James Allsopp on bass clarinet. This promises to be an excellent night of original and improvised music! Doors 8pm, music 8.30pm, £5 entry.
