“Totally liberating. Scary as hell.”
This ground-breaking tour took the idea of live improvisation to exciting new territories fusing a myriad of musical styles and approaches from jazz and classical to drum & bass and breakbeat.
Through-out the 2000s THE BAYS established themselves as one of the most exciting, innovative bands on the UK live circuit mixing high octane dance music with live jazz instrumentation. Their trade-mark was only playing live, they never recorded or rehearsed.
For this project this mentality was fused with THE HERITAGE ORCHESTRA where composers John Metcalfe and Simon Hale notated music live for the orchestra to improvise with thrilling results.
