Eye Contact

Eye Contact is a group of three young free jazz musicians who are bringing new life to the tradition. Matt Lavelle’s bass clarinet and trumpet work is characterized by a strong emotional honesty, a warm and rich tone, and nerve-shredding sound. His trumpet playing is influenced by Middle Eastern scales, which lends an unusual richness to his sound. He plays with a disarming depth and emotion that’s very touching and affecting. Matt Heyner is a kind of underground hero, with many influences that include fire music and death metal. He also has a personal vision and lyrical style that make him one of the most sought-after improvisers in NYC. Sawyer is part of a number of exciting free jazz groups in New York. His agility is key to this trio. http://arika.org.uk
