27th November: Colin Webster/Alex Ward/Andrew Lisle

This week at Long White Cloud, we’re hosting the debut performance by a brand new improvising trio comprising Colin Webster (saxophones), Alex Ward (guitar), and Andrew Lisle (drums). The trio formed prompted by an offer of a free recording session – an offer too good to pass up! This first musical meeting led to the trio’s new album ‘Red Kite’, out this month on Raw Tonk Records.

All three members of the trio are prolific on the UK and European improvised music scene. Alex Ward is known for his early collaborations with Derek Bailey, his powerhouse trio N.E.W. with Steve Noble and John Edwards, and his composition/songwriting work with his sextet, and duo Dead Days Beyond Help respectively. Andrew Lisle has worked with a number of key London-based improvisors including Ward, Daniel Thompson, Seymour Wright, and plays in Roland Ramanan’s Tentet, and punk-improv band Shatner’s Bassoon. Colin Webster is known for his duos with drummer Mark Holub, and also turntablist Graham Dunning. He also performs regularly with Dutch free jazz/noise trio Dead Neanderthals.

Join us for a great night of music!
