Featuring: Tom Barford – Saxophone / Alex Hitchcock – Saxophone / Jasper Høiby – Double bass / Marc Michel – Drums

‘They combine fierce, virtuoso improvisations, electronic elements and collaboratively constructed compositions’ – London Jazz

AuB is the London based quartet, masterminded by two young saxophonists, Tom Barford and Alex Hitchcock, musicians who are making huge waves as part of the next generation of virtuosic instrumentalists intent on doing things their way. AuB (pronounced ORB) refers to the meeting and unity of two musical minds and instrumental sounds melded into one group sound. Twin tenors tradition has had a long history but with AuB, it’s the collaborative writing process and blending of sounds that drives their group sound. Together with bassist Fergus Ireland and drummer James Maddren, AuB melds contemporary Jazz sounds, an adventurous and risk-taking spirit with a degree of unpredictability, nuance and intense improvisation.
