Ben Vince & Jacob Samuel

Fig 1

First Terrace
Having collaborated with the synthetically adventurous likes of Mica Levi, Klein and Joy Orbison, this pairing choose here to go back to basics and improvise raw piano and sax duets. The results, as heard on ‘Fig 1’, are surprisingly soulful, and less jagged than expected. Samuel’s piano ushers Vince’s parps away from atonal squeaks and towards a dramatic and evocative, almost romantic sensibility.
