PAUL DUNMALL ‘TRIBUTE TO COLTRANE’ [Paul Dunmall: sax, Tony Bianco: drums]
Paul Dunmall’s massive sound on saxophone and melodic sensibility has always demonstrated the influence of John Coltrane on his playing and he makes this debt even more explicit in this duo with drummer Tony Bianco whose own rolling, polyrhythmic excursions and free-time explorations are descended from both Elvin Jones and Rashied Ali. The pair’s recent recording of thanks to John Coltrane mines the melodic and hypnotic possibilities of the interstellar space format to fantastic effect and having them present it here is certainly something to look forward to.
“Paul Dunmall’s music is precise and uncompromising, but full of expression” BBC Radio 3
“One of the most uncompromising and talented reed players on the international jazz/improvised music scene.” Proper Music
RICHARD DAWSON [guitar, vocals]
Richard Dawson was, until he appeared at TUSK and Supersonic festivals in 2012, the North East of England’s hidden jewel; a skewed troubadour who sings and plays guitar with a rare intensity and singular style. His voice has been compared to everyone from Tim Buckley to Richard Youngs while his guitar playing recalls Sir Richard Bishop and Zoot Horn Rollo and, combined with the inescapable snare of his lyrics, means surrender to his music is inevitable. He also happens to be hilariously surreal between songs too.
This year he’s gone from local legend to touring Europe twice, performing at festivals such as Latitude, Supernormal, Incubate and SOY and being lauded by Late Junction, The Wire, The Quietus and many more. It’s too easy to describe any artist as peerless but this time it really is the case. He’s genuinely one of the most affecting performers you’ll ever see.
“a mesmerising, pungent collection…draws out hidden truths in strong bold strokes” Stewart Lee, The Sunday Times
”This remarkable album packs all these emotions and more into its 19 highly idiosyncratic and imaginative pieces…it’s mingling of the incidental with the testimonial hopes and anxieties of all-but-forgotten people is profoundly affecting.” Alex Neilson, The Wire
