From the Artist
This album is dedicated to the memory of my father shake Keane, a great trumpeter & flugelhorn player and poet who played alongside the pioneering alto saxophonist Joe Harriott. This is my first album as leader and I wanted to indulge my long time interest in the grey areas between composition and improvisation. To this end, most of the tracks have some organising principal. I wanted a group capable of reflecting my love of jazz, but also the more abstract forms of sound based improvisation. All this and a consideration of what (some) people might actually like to listen to in their own homes.
