Anyone following me on twitter  - or who has stood next to me at all in the last 3 months -  will know about my love of tiny beast. Josh, Joshua and Chris are among the heaviest players on the scene, and have combined beats, bass and burning improvisation to create something monstrous.

Brass Mask live at the Oxford, 27 October 2014


In Brass Mask, Tom Challenger has created something infectious, powerful and fun. He draws a line from the most adventurous work going on in the London scene, firmly through Ascension, right back to the second line and beyond. Anyone doubting the faith to African-American tradition in forward-thinking contemporary jazz should keep quiet until they've given them a good listening-to.
