descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Over the past years Ingrid Laubrock has gradually come to the limelight of the current jazz scene. She has won several awards and prizes with a jazz that is boldly modern yet deeply rooted in tradition. The music of her trio Sleepthief is born from the very moment, yet the compositional consciousness of form seems to guide the free improvisations here. Born in the Münsterland region in a musical family Ingrid Laubrock took off to Berlin as soon as she finished school. In Berlin she eked out a living on odd jobs and went to London. Jean Toussaint was her first saxophone teacher. A book by David Liebmann made Laubrock travel to the USA where she attended a one week masterclass with the Miles Davis saxophone player. The impact was overwhelming. Laubrock took a 6 months sabbatical, she practiced frenetically to take in all the new impulses. After this she went to study jazz for one year. The polystylistics of the 1990 jazz have formed Laubrocks musical view of the world. "Even today I try to listen to many different styles and to absorb as many new influences as I can. You have to be receptive, all sensors ready to pickup. That opens one's senses for new sensations" says Laubrock. With her trio Sleepthief she acts on this maxim."-Intakt

"After studying music at Oxford University, and jazz at the Guildhall in London, Liam Noble started to build a reputation of note playing with Stan Sulzmann, Anita Wardell, John Stevens and Harry Beckett. His first CD, a solo entitled "Close Your Eyes" was released in 1994, and contained a mix of standards, originals and improvisations. This mixture of approaches has characterized his music ever since. In 1997 he joined the Bobby Wellins Quartet, the rhythm section of which continues today as the Liam Noble Trio, recently documented on the 2009 CD "BRUBECK", gaining an almost unprecedented 5 star review in The Guardian. In 2001, "In The Meantime", released on Basho Records, explored longer compositional forms and unorthodox improvisational structures, and April 2002 saw a commission from Birmingham Jazz resulting in a song cycle based on Japanese Death Poetry. Noble plays keyboards and samples throughout, marking a new foray into electronica inspired by artists such as Aphex Twin and Arto Lindsay. In 2004, following a Cheltenham Festival gig the previous year, Liam recorded the acclaimed "Romance Among The Fishes" on Basho Records with guitarist Phil Robson and the New York rhythm section of Drew Gress and Tom Rainey on bass and drums respectively.

Liam's working relationship has continued with Tom Rainey in the free improv trio, "Sleepthief" with Ingrid Laubrock, with an album released in September 2008, and a second, "The Madness Of Crowds" in 2011. Other frequent collaborators have included Christine Tobin, Paul Clarvis and Julian Siegel. His growing reputation as a free improviser has also resulted in recent performances with Mary Halverson, Marc Ducret, Mat Maneri, Evan Parker, Okkyung Lee and Peter Evans. In June 2011 he was featured on a recording by Zhenya Strigalev with Larry Grenadier, Tim LeFebvre and Eric Harland. His newest project is an expanded trio with Chris Batchelor and Shabaka Hutchings. As a kind of summation of the diverse areas in which he works combined with a compositional eye for structure, this new group was highly praised at its premiere performance at the Cheltenham Jazz festival in 2012. Liam holds posts as Lecturer in Jazz at Birmingham Conservatoire and Trinity College of Music. He has published 4 volumes of transcriptions of the Bill Evans Trio, and a book of original compositions "Jazz Piano; An In Depth Look at the Styles of the Masters", both published by Hal Leonard."
