Recently I was lucky enough to host a 2 hour Collocutor takeover for the Jazz Special series on Worldwide FM. It features selections from, and interviews with, various band members, and some special quartet versions of material from our latest album “The Search”…

Very happy to announce that Collocutor will be playing Band on the Wall in Manchester on 30th July!
This will be a very special show, with music from both our albums and a tribute to one of our favourite jazz innovators. More details and early bird tickets here:
