Trish Clowes: Pocket Compass

Read "Pocket Compass" reviewed by

On her debut album, Tangent (Basho Records, 2010), saxophonist Trish Clowes gathered together a large group of musicians and included a full orchestra on two tracks. For her impressive second album, And In The Night-time She Is There (Basho Records, 2012), she streamlined the line-up, adding just half a dozen guests to the core quintet but ensuring that the string players had the talent and opportunity to improvise. Pocket Compass is built once again around Clowes and her core group, augmented on three tunes by the addition of the BBC Concert Orchestra. In her sleeve notes, Clowes writes ...

Read "Tangent" reviewed by

Trish Clowes' Tangent is an ambitious project that brings together free improvisations, small band numbers and full-scale orchestral pieces to create a fascinating collection of new music.
