The Matt Anderson / Jiannis Pavlidis duo album has now been released online by Leeds-based New Jazz Records – it can be streamed for free on bandcamp or below, or downloaded for a paltry £1.50. Enjoy!
Here’s what we said about it in the press release:
Saxophonist Matt Anderson and guitarist Jiannis Pavlidis have spent a great deal of time playing together over the past five years in a variety of different contexts, however they are at their least constrained and most spontaneous when working in the format of their latest album, where they are heard simply as a duo. On ‘Alone Together’ they build on a shared passion for the music of the Great American Songbook, performing classic songs and jazz standards in an open and sometimes abstract manner which can only be achieved by two musicians with an intuitive feel for each others’ next move.
