The semi-classical drums/sax/piano trio Mammal Hands mutate into a high-volume rave act” The Guardian
Consisting of saxophonist Jordan Smart, pianist Nick Smart and drummer and tabla player Jesse Barrett, Mammal Hands have forged a growing reputation for their hypnotic fusion of jazz and electronica and their pulsating live performances. Drawing on a shared love of electronic, contemporary classical, world, folk and jazz music, Mammal Hands take in influences including Pharoah Sanders, Gétachèw Mekurya, Terry Riley, Steve Reich and Sirishkumar Manji to create something exhilaratingly new. They appear tonight playing music from their new album Captured Spirts (Gondwana Records Sept 2020) alongside favourites from previous albums.
Nick Smart keyboards, Jesse Barrett drums and tabla, and Jordan Smart saxophones.
