Thanks to Rachel Maby for these kind words about LOCUS!
Monday saw a performance from the newly emerged ‘Locus’ band, brought together by Kim Macari and featuring alto-saxophonist Leah Gough-Cooper’s compositions. Having met 10 years ago playing for the National Youth Jazz orchestra of Scotland, the two have beautifully musically crafted this sextet. Leah’s through-compositions combine spacious discordant harmonies channelled through fugue-like weaving horn lines. Kim’s soft touch and Leah’s sonorous playing, coupled with the raw and electric playing of tenor-saxophonist Riley Stone-Lonergan brought together the ideal front line.
