Release Date: 07/05/21
A shared love of bebop and composition discovered at a fortuitous meeting at the Tate Britain, set guitarist Alban Claret and trumpeter Evan Clegg on a path leading to the May 2021 release of their debut album The Collection.
After playing together for some time, the duo decided to put pen to paper to create a collection of compositions. Creative sparks flew at a thunderous pace and they quickly built a repertoire of original material rooted firmly within the jazz tradition yet remaining at once compelling and accessible to listeners.
Their powerful delivery of snappy tunes along with confident improvisational passages clearly reflect the influences of Charlie Parker, Lennie Tristano and Miles Davis.
