'An object lesson in how two high-output creative minds can operate in the same sonic bailiwick without getting in each other’s way… there’s a warm, inclusive spirit at work that doesn’t compromise the fierce artistic vision'

JAZZWISE [UK]

'We are witnessing the birth of a new star in the jazz firmament'

EVAN PARKER on Tom Barford

'A deep sonority combined with a spectacular mastering of phrasing and harmony'

JAZZ MAGAZINE [FR] on Alex Hitchcock

___________________________________________

AuB refers to the meeting of two musical minds: a collaborative writing process and blending of individual styles drives the group sound. AuB amalgamates contemporary jazz and an adventurous and electronic soundscape with a risk-taking spirit and a degree of unpredictability, nuance and intense improvisation.
