MoonMot album available to pre-order

Happy new year! A quick post as I ease myself into 2020 after a break from the internet. I’ve updated my gigs page with my dates for January to March and it’s dominated by MoonMot: the Swiss/UK sextet is back on the road in February and March, touring in the UK and mainland Europe as well as releasing its debut album ‘Going Down The Well’ on 14th February via Swiss label Unit Records. In the mean time, you can have a listen to a couple of tracks and pre-order the album (in LP, CD and digital form) on the MoonMot Bandcamp site.

MoonMot Switzerland tour

At the end of the month I’m heading to Switzerland on tour with the newly-named MoonMot sextet. This group originally came out of a LUME collaboration with Jazzwerkstatt Bern in 2017, featuring UK and Swiss musicians and playing the music of our LUME quartet project Word Of Moth. The UK/CH ensemble has now taken on its own identity and has a recording session and tour lined up, all masterminded by trombone player Simon Petermann. The dates:

27 March – Lucerne: Neustahl
28 March – Shaffhausen: Haberhaus
29 March – Solothurn: Kreuz Kultur
30 March – Bern: BeJazz
1 April – Lugano: Studio Foce
2 April – Zurich: Falcone Sounds

And the personnel:

Simon Petermann – trombone
Dee Byrne – alto saxophone
Cath Roberts – baritone saxophone
Oli Kuster – piano/keyboards
Seth Bennett – double bass
Johnny Hunter – drums
