Madwort's Mechanical Mindset
After spending the past year or so establishing the Madwort Sax Quartet, Tom Ward (see the anagram?), has recruited a rhythm section and is exploring his music in a more stripped-down lineup of sax, keyboards (Dave O’Brien), bass (Spencer Brown) and drums (Olly Blackman).
Tom composes using Steve Coleman-esque number sequences as a starting point, and the result is intriguing groove music that transports the listener in unexpected directions.
