"'Nick of Time' is one of the best sax-led trio dates I've
heard in recent memory." - Bruce Lee Gallanter, DMG August 2014
Mike Fletcher - Alto sax/Flute, Olie Brice – Bass, Tymoteusz Jozwiak - Drums
"Nick of Time", the first release by the Birmingham based improvising trio ‘Fletcher/Brice/Jozwiak’ was recorded in an afternoon at Highbury Studios in Birmingham, UK. From the opening of the first track, ‘Dedication (To Tony Levin)’ (inspired by memories of the late, great drummer), the improvisations evolve as a series of spontaneous conversations between the members of the trio. They tread the line between jazz and the avant-garde; music that is simultaneously lyrically inventive and emotionally enriching.
Birmingham born Fletcher played lead alto with European Jazz Orchestra: Londoner Brice worked with Paul Dunmall and Ken Vandermark; Jozwiak moved from Poland to UK to study with Tony Levin. The three came together in 2013, immediately striking the rapport that elevates their music.
Keeping it in ‘the family’, the photography and design are by a good friend of the trio and great artist Mat Kaweczynski.
