The tour dates for A Hawk and A Hacksaw‘s latest LP – The Forest Bathing had been already announced. The band is for now an almost decade with an LM Dedication label and the last 3 LP recorded for them are nothing but the grow. Have a look at the venue list as it spreads nicely across the whole UK and there is a fair chance that you can make it. I will certainly do at the Con Club, Lewes. See you there.
Forest Bathing, or Shinrin-yoku, is a term that means “taking in the forest atmosphere.” It was developed in Japan during the 1980s and has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine.
Wanja Slavin (BMW World Jazz Award, Echo Jazz Award) presents his new album, “Salvation” with music that dazzles like the iridescent layers of a rainbow, evoking a radiance and authority – seven compositional gems with an orchestral feeling, rich tonal colors and sophisticated arrangements.
Three years later, the music from that bout of intense creativity is now released in a new ensemble constellation that sees Arthurs expand his long-time duo with pianist Richard Fairhurst to a trio with the inclusion of Finnish percussionist Markku Ounaskari. Fragile and deep, mysterious and nocturnal, romantic and entrancing, it may be both Arthurs’ most quiet and intense effort.
