AuB are the London based quartet masterminded by two young saxophonists, Tom Barford and Alex Hitchcock, musicians who are making huge waves as part of the next generation of virtuosic instrumentalists intent on doing things their way. AuB refers to the meeting of two musical minds: instrumental sounds melded into one group resonance.
The twin tenors tradition has a long history but with AuB it’s the collaborative writing process and blending of individual styles that drives the group sound. Together with bassist Fergus Ireland and drummer James Maddren, AuB amalgamates contemporary jazz sounds and an adventurous and electronic soundscape with a risk-taking spirit and a degree of unpredictability, nuance and intense improvisation.
