Description

'Andromeda' is the second solo release from the acclaimed London-based saxophonist and composer Alex Garnett and is the debut recording of 'Bunch of Five', his two tenor saxophone project. This quintet brings the classic dueling saxophone format into a contemporary context, giving it a fresh face without losing its gladiatorial edge.

The two frontmen, Garnett and the NYC-based Tim Armacost have a collective 50 years of combined playing experience on the international stage, frequently appearing at festivals and clubs across the map. Finally a situation has matured to allow these two men to join forces and expand upon their mutual admiration, and the results are impressive - their individual sound, phrasing and approach to playing the saxophone compliment each other greatly while at the same time pushing each other to their improvisational limits.

'Bunch of Five' engages in exciting original repertoire which at once is both grounded in the tradition yet aspires to push beyond the comfort bubble in its harmonic considerations and improvisations. Rounding out the group is a highly versatile rhythm section featuring UK superstar pianist Liam Noble, powerhouse American bassist Michael Janisch, and one of London's most musical and in demand young drummers, James Maddren.

Personnel: Alex Garnett, Tim Armacost (tenor saxophone), Liam Noble (piano), Michael Janisch (double bass), James Maddren (drums)
