Description

US pianist Steve Cohn alongside saxophonist George Haslam and bassist Steve Kershaw, performing in the beautiful All Saints Church in rural Oxfordshire. The churchyard is the burial place of George Orwell - hence the 'Orwell's Blues' reference.

The music programme attempted to trace influences from folk songs, blues and free improvisation. The trio met for the first time at the church - Steve C arrived in UK the day before; Steve K returned home from holiday also the day before and, as he had a lunchtime gig on the day of the concert, was not able to meet Steve C before it was time to take the stage. Everything that had to be said was in the music.

Personnel: George Haslam (baritone and alto saxophones, tarogato), Steve Cohn (piano, shakuhachi, hichiriki, shofar), Steve Kershaw (double bass).
