Our monthly adventurous night programmed by Lume.
Roland Ramanan Tentet
This tentet comprises some of the most exciting musicians to emerge from the
European free jazz/improvised music scene. Inspired by playing with the Peter
Btrotzmann tentet, the group combines original compositions with free and
conducted improvised music to wildly sensual effect.

Andreae/Birchall/Cheetham with Javier Saso
A trio of Manchester’s finest improvisers, joined by a special guest. Tenor player Sam
Andreae is known for his collaborations with Scandinavian musicians in the critically-
acclaimed bands Trio Riot and Silence Blossoms, as well as countless other projects.
Birchall and Cheetham’s duo was described by Mojo as ‘a psychedelic maelstrom of
sound that threatens to atomise your walls’. The trio toured Scandinavia in 2013 and
have performed widely around the UK and further afield. With their debut release
newly out on the Tombed Visions label, they are joined tonight by Madrid
experimental musician Javier Saso.
