New Collocutor single and EFG London Jazz Festival 2022

Brand new Collocutor single available for pre-order!

This live version of ‘Pause Reprise’ was recorded at 91 Living Room, London in March 2022. It was Collocutor’s first UK gig to a live audience in 2 years, since their album release at Church of Sound back in 2020. There was a huge amount of joy at being able to be in the same room again from both the musicians and audience – the band hopes this is palpable on this recording!

For the Londoners, the release of this track coincides with the band’s return to the same venue for the 2022 EFG London Jazz Festival on 13th November:

Josephine Davies – tenor sax
