I’m pleased to say that the debut, eponymous album by The Spirit Farm is released today on SLAM. It’s an amazing line-up, with myself on various mechanical keyboards, Christophe de Bezenac on tenor saxophone, Anton Hunter on electric guitar, Johnny Hunter on drums, Dave Kane on bass and Corey Mwamaba on all sorts of things.
The album’s available from Amazon and all the usual places, or direct from SLAM:
The Markov Chain is a new trio with Adam on piano, Tim Fairhall on bass and British Free Music legend Paul Hession on drums. The trio play freely improvised music. Their debut performance was at the Manchester Jazz Festival 2013, a gig that received an excellent review by Mike Butler, who wrote:
This was the orgiastic, earth-shaking, cacophonous real deal, with none of the mimsy “I don’t feel ready for this yet” reticence that besets so much homegrown free jazz… The hour passed too quickly. I loved it.

The trio are currently mixing their debut album. Please keep an eye out for news about the album’s release and upcoming gigs.
