Let Spin are a versatile post-jazz four piece with an egalitarian musical ethos. Comprising composer-instrumentalists Moss Freed (guitar), Ruth Goller (bass), Finlay Panter (drums), and Chris Williams (saxophone), the group formed in 2012, when Freed invited three of his favourite musicians to fill a one-off series of live dates at short notice. Recognising an irrepressible musical connection, they continued in earnest, developing their sound over a pair of critically-acclaimed studio albums, and a number of live shows throughout the UK.
Their forthcoming third album, scheduled for release in spring 2020 on Efpi Records, is a triumph in experimental post-jazz, showcasing the band’s ever-broadening web of musical influences and individual progression as composers and performers.
With their particular blend of elusive melodies, heavy grooves, euphoric improv and playfulness with time, Let Spin’s electrifying live shows have left UK audiences awe-struck. Their inspirations are far-reaching: from Rage Against The Machine to Hermeto Pascoal; Bill Frisell to J.S. Bach – coalesced into a sound that is truly their own. The enthusiasm of each performer has led them to work with some of contemporary jazz’s most exciting acts: Laura Jurd, Sarathy Korwar, Led Bib, Beats & Pieces Big Band and Melt Yourself Down amongst others. Yet, ultimately, it is within this combination that their creativity truly shines.
