Musician

Partikel

Active since:

Partikel are three London based musicians all with very different musical backgrounds who have come together to make music mixing all of their favorite influences in a melodic, coherent and accurate way. The music puts an interesting twist on the standard jazz format while still honoring the tradition of deep harmony and creative improvisation. Drawing influence from African and Latin American music combined with the style of the contemporary jazz scene, Partikel produce a personal, committed and contemporary take on the saxophone trio. Soulful melodies are combined seamlessly with complex mixed meter vamps along with an instantly identifiable energy and band sound. Since their Whirlwind debut as an acoustic trio (Cohesion, 2012), Partikel have progressively pushed at the developmental possibilities, and 2015’s String Theory – augmenting the line-up of Duncan Eagles (saxophones), Max Luthert (double bass) and Eric Ford (drums) with string quartet – generated significant interest, spawning numerous gigs both in the UK and internationally

Benet McLean: Green Park

Read "Green Park" reviewed by Chris May


Best known as a pianist, with four critically acclaimed albums behind him, on Green Park Benet McLean returns to his first instrument, the violin. The press release says he began studying the instrument at the age of 3, and Wikipedia tells us he was at some stage mentored by classical maestro Yehudi Menuhin. It stacks up. ...

Partikel: Counteraction

Read "Counteraction" reviewed by Roger Farbey


Counteraction is Partikel's fourth album to date and their follow-up to 2015's String Theory. Without wishing to wrap this review up in a couple of sentences, it's probably their best to date and adopts their customary deployment of heterogeneous instrumentation--strings and reeds notably--and characteristically unorthodox structures. “Land And Sea" begins tentatively but soon leads ...

Partikel: String Theory

Read "String Theory" reviewed by Roger Farbey


A frenetic opening to the third album by Partikel augurs well for the rest of this hour-long recording and there's almost a reminiscence of Frank Zappa's Hot Rats in its intensity. Partikel here is augmented on this session by a string quartet. A jazz trio with strings? Yes, but not just any strings, these are strings ...

Partikel: Cohesion

Read "Cohesion" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Partikel è un trio inglese pianoless capitanato dal giovane sassofonista Duncan Eagles. La formazione è qui al secondo album ed è caratterizzata da un marcato dinamismo che si sviluppa attraverso composizioni (quasi tutte di Eagles) volutamente frammentarie, dai temi minimali e reiterati, eppure non prive di una narratività in filigrana. Sono esempi di questo stile - ...
