About

Theo Travis' saxophone blues returns home for intimate gig Theo Travis' Double Talk play powerful bluesy progressive jazz, with smoking Hammond organ, explosive guitar solos, emotional tenor sax and flute and powerhouse drumming. Performing songs from their hit album Transgression, their gig at artsdepot's Studio Theatre, Sun 28 Jan, will be an intimate evening of passionate music and haunting instrumental tunes from one of Britain's top jazz saxophonists and flautists and his band. Transgression, Double Talk's latest album, fuses prog rock, jazz and blues in Theo Travis' distinctive, attractive compositions, and was released worldwide in 2015. It features Theo Travis on tenor and soprano saxophones and flute, the soulful hammond organ of Pete Whittaker, the soaring guitar of Mike Outram and the powerful but subtle drums and percussion of Nic France. The music is melodic and cinematic, but is also moody and atmospheric, incorporating multi-layers of saxes and flutes improvised live. International recording artist and Finchley resident Theo Travis' many musical interests come together in this distinctive quartet project. He has appeared on over 120 albums and played at Ronnie Scott's in London over 70 times. He has worked with David Gilmour, Soft Machine, Robert Fripp, David Sylvian, Anja Garbarek, Steven Wilson, John Etheridge, Gong and Keith Tippett, amongst many others. His latest album, Open Air, was released in 2017.
