Now, surrounding himself with some of British jazz’s present-day torch bearers – Sam Leak (piano), Ralph Wyld (vibes), Duncan Eagles (tenor sax), Max Luthert (double bass) and Dave Hamblett (drums) – the saxophonist has set out with exciting new sextet project Spirit, whose debut album of original material – Ask Seek Knock – is due for release on the Whirlwind label in June 2017, with longtime supporter Jean Toussaint guesting. This groove-laden recording – inspired by Eagles’ explorations of spirituality, sacrifice and beliefs.
