Two new releases on the iconic New Wave of Jazz label run by Dirk Serries. Firstly, ‘Boskage’ is a set of improvisations with acoustic guitarist Daniel Thompson.

“Without experimentation, there can be no growth. Thompson and Webster take this notion to heart, expanding the grammar and vocabulary of their instruments, breaking conventional rules of interplay in the process.” – Mike Borella, Avant Music News

Line-up: Colin Webster – alto sax, Daniel Thompson – acoustic guitar

The second release is from the ever-evolving TONUS ensemble, this time as a trio with Dirk Serries on accordion and soprano melodica, and Martina Verhoeven on concertina and ‘cello. The three pieces that make up ‘Segment Tones’ sit at the intersection between minimalism, improvisation, and composition.
