All of your favorites, in one place.
Recorded live at the Vortex Jazz Club, Sunday November 13th 2011 as part of the London Jazz Festival by Alex Bonney
Taylor Ho Bynum (Thobulous Music), Harris Eisenstadt (Socan/Heresy Music), Alexander Hawkins (Big Life/In All Seriousness Music Ltd.) and Dominic Lash (PRS).
The Convergence Quartet brings together four leaders of a generation of composer-improvisers who draw on both US and European traditions in their music. All established bandleaders in their own right, the bandmember’s credits also include work with many seminal names in contemporary jazz: Anthony Braxton, John Butcher, Joe McPhee, Louis Moholo-Moholo, Evan Parker, Sam Rivers, and Cecil Taylor, to name only a few. They come together to offer a ‘powerful example of 21st-century musical catholicity’ (John Fordham, The Guardian) and ‘moments of magical innovation’ (Paul Medley, The Oxford Times).
The group’s first album was enthusiastically reviewed in both the US and the UK, and featured in various critics’ ‘top ten albums of 2007’ lists. Their 2011 tour is in support of their second album, ‘Song/Dance’, released on Clean Feed Records.
