About the event

'DREAM BAND' is Alex Hitchcock's series recording his favourite musicians in new combinations, playing music written especially for them. The resulting albums are full of surprises, terrain shifts, harmonic nuance and emotional depth, underpinned by a freshness of approach and fearless interplay. The second volume was captured over three sold-out nights at London’s iconic Vortex jazz club.

'I feel lucky to be surrounded by so many distinctive and contrasting voices, and want to capture that variety on record, creating space for the musicians to express themselves and shape my music. Partly, it is a kind of “curating” – I imagine what different combinations of my favourite musicians would sound like and write music for that.'

Line Up

Alex Hitchcock (saxophone)

Press
