Interplay brings together the talents and experience of five fine musicians, fuelled by diverse musical influences, and focussed on performing original material to make it their own. Mainly penned by bassist Adrian Litvinoff, the tunes provide hugely varied settings for the band’s invention and spontaneity.
Alan Wakeman, (saxes, flute), and Richard Baker (trombone) form a poised front line. Embracing very different styles they have evolved a close musical understanding. Neil Hunter (keyboard), Adrian Litvinoff (basses) and Dave Balen (drums, percussion) weave together all kinds of dynamics – assertive, fluid, spacious and energetic, as the music requires.
