Face to Face is saxophonist-composer Jeremy Rose’s fourth solo album and video series featuring pianist Steve Barry bassist Noel Mason and drummer Alex Hirlian.
“This lineup has been playing regularly for the past few years” Rose explains. “I am humbled by what each member brought to this record and what we managed to create together. The album really captures the group at a high point.
”The album is a reflection on the way we connect with each other and the importance of real-life connections. Rose explains “We live in an increasingly connected yet isolated world. Whilst we are always reachable many have never felt more alone. I felt like I needed to reinforce the fundamental part of what makes us human – face-to-face connections.
The band premiered many of the new works after a period of writing during a lockdown in April 2020 for a live-streamed performance for International Jazz Day.
