Weston / Laubrock / Marshall
Haste

Weston / Laubrock / Marshall: Haste (Emanem)
Label: Emanem    
Released in: Great Britain    


"Haste is an improvising trio that has been in existence for a few years. This Barcelona concert shows how well they create together. Pianist Veryan Weston has been a leading member of the London improvisation scene for decades with numerous releases on Emanem and elsewhere. Cellist Hannah Marshall is a newer arrival who is already much in demand. Both have also been involved in pre-composed music. Saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock has been a part of the London jazz scene since she arrived here around 20 years ago, but has been moving in somewhat freer circles since her recent move to New York City. Together they improvise chamber music of the highest order."-Emanem
