Identity Parade is the story of big textures, glowing valves, epic soundscapes and free spirited improvisation amongst three good friends and frequent collaborators. It’s making music that feels honest, searching and surprising; it’s anything we feel like.
Since filming the above video we have been working on new music experimenting with samplers, loops and vocals, and will be giving the new songs their first outings over the next couple of weeks at two great venues.
The first is on Thursday 4th July for the opening of the brand new LUME (LondonJazz’s preview HERE night run by Dee Byrne and Cath Roberts at ‘Hundred Crows Rising’ in Angel. It is a double-bill with Redshift, an excellent co-led group featuring Trish Clowes, Andrea Di Biase and Pat Davey.
The second is the first (of hopefully many) ‘SE Collective Present’ nights at The Crypt in Camberwell, run by the tireless Jazzlive team, which is Thursday 11th July as part of the Camberwell Jazz Festival alongside The Way That You Do It, featuring Arthur Lea, Henrik Jensen and Peter Ibbetson. We will also be performing at one of three SE Collective nights (19th November) as part of London Jazz Festival 2013.
