Forces of Convergence

Self promotion time. The second Convergence Quartet tour begins this Saturday. I quite like what Time Out had to say:

"Youthful and intense US/European jazz improv quartet featuring cornetist Taylor Ho Bynum, drummer Harris Eisenstadt, pianist Alexander Hawkins and bassist Dominic Lash. Bringing together two opposing but complimentary sides of improvised music – where Cecil Taylor and Anthony Braxton meet Evan Parker and John Butcher – this band take no prisoners in their reach for the outer limits of music."
