Described as “An Innovator" by The Guardian, Guitarist Ant Law was a scholar at Edinburgh University and Berklee College of Music. He now lives in London and works extensively with his own quintet, as well as (Grammy-winner and Chick Corea sideman) Tim Garland's “Lighthouse" (along with Jason Rebello and Asaf Sirkis), and with saxophonist/composer Paul Riley and Trio HLK.
2014 saw Ant's quintet complete a long tour and head straight into the studio, tracking Zero Sum World for Michael Janisch's prestigious Whirlwind Recordings label. ZSW was released on February 16th 2015 to another sold out Pizza Express (this time a 2-night stand) and another tour followed.

"Along the way we hear post-M-Base-ish metric twists, a funky revamp of a South Indian cyclical rhythmic etude as well as more ambient , jangly folk-rock guitar moments..." Jazzwise Magazine
"Getting more and more out of this music every time I hear it." The Jazz Breakfast

 

SEED are a ten-piece band led by alto saxophonist and composer Cassie Kinoshi and present a stellar line-up featuring some of London’s most up-and-coming young jazz musicians.

Combining jazz with inner-city London, West African and Caribbean influenced groove, SEED explores a blend of genres through both original music and arrangements.

Keep your jazz juices flowing with this video from the first ever JAZZ IN THE ROUND.

For The Cockpit, Jazz In The Round has reinvented an iconic event.
Forty years ago Humprey Burton broadcast T. Rex, among others, from the iconic seventies theatre off Marylebone’s Lisson Grove as part of the London Weekend Television Music In The Round series (Video p.1 - Video p.2). 

For those that were at the Phronesis recording a while back , you may see yourself here in this delightful trailer
