Y Divide first performed at Jazzwerkstatt Festival in Bern, Switzerland in February 2019. We recorded a studio album in June – straight to analogue tape in front of a live audience (Mazzive Sound Productions, Switzerland). The band plays the music of drummer and bandleader Clemens Kuratle, with myself on alto saxophone, Chris Guilfoyle on guitar, Elliot Galvin on keys and Lukas Travel on Bass. The release of the album and accompanying tour was postponed due to the pandemic (sadly we were due to pay at Cheltenham Jazz Festival in May 2020…) But I’m looking forward to being able to play with the band again in the near future and to releasing our album in the fullness of time.
