Moers Festival Interviews: Chris Pitsiokos

Read "Moers Festival Interviews: Chris Pitsiokos" reviewed by Martin Longley


Alto saxophonist Chris Pitsiokos has successfully made a deep impression on the improvising scene of NYC during what amounts to almost the last decade. Still youthful, his raging complexity and conceptual attitude have the backing of a dedication to finding gigs, or even promoting his own events, and of always seeking out unfamiliar players for adventurous ...

Let Spin: Steal The Light

Read "Steal The Light" reviewed by Chris May

The music was certainly loud, irreverent and in-your-face, but it was played by musicians who were conservatoire graduates, a demographic not ...

Vitor Pereira Quintet: New World

Read "Vitor Pereira Quintet: New World" reviewed by Phil Barnes

Vitor Pereira Quintet: New World

Read "New World" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay


New World is the second album from this quintet, led by the London-based Portuguese guitarist and composer Vitor Pereira. Like the band's 2012 debut, Doors, the music reflects the many influences which Pereira has learnt from but New World sees his work move a step further, his voice as a writer and instrumentalist developing a more ...
