Saxoctopus is an exciting new ensemble of eight improvising saxophonists. Our debut album is out now on Raw Tonk Records! It was recorded at The Vortex in London by Alex Bonney, and features the combined talents of Julie Kjær, Cath Roberts, Viceroy Tom Ward, Sam Andreae, Colin Webster, Oliver Dover, Rachel musson and me.

The year is drawing to a close and it’s been an eventful one for Entropi with a packed out gig at Pizza Express (part of the ‘Xantone Blacq Presents’ series), being awarded the Jazz Services Recording Support Grant, recording our debut album at Fish Factory Studios, launching a successful Kickstarter campaign and playing to a full house at LUME for the EFG London Jazz Festival – read our great review HERE.
We’re looking forward to an exciting year in 2015 when we release our album on the ‘F-IRE Presents’ label, with album launch planned for June 7th at the Vortex with ‘LUME Presents…’ and plans for an ambitious UK double-bill tour! More on that soon.
Meanwhile, have a great Christmas!
