Another musician who played in our very first season, Loz Speyer returns with Inner Space. The band features Xhosa Cole – BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year 2018 – and Dee Byrne, a strong and fiery alto player, who brings a distinctive new sound as she steps into the role Chris Biscoe held since 2003.
Inner Space plays jazz with a rare warmth and immediacy. Speyer’s compositions combine references from New Orleans, through Bebop to Free Jazz, with audible echoes of Mingus, Monk, Ornette and more.
