Asaxual was formed in 2016 with a view to paying tribute to some of the most magnificent two-brass front lines of the recent past, such as the great Jay & Kai, and heavyweights like Shew and Fontana. Toms I'Anson and Sharp draw on their considerable big band experience to bring arrangements with variety, contrast, dynamics and structure to the genre of improvisatory small band music. Asaxual stands in defiance of those who believe hard bop needs saxophones!
"The band were wonderful!! They brought real musicianship - power and subtlety to their set for the festival. Terrific improvising too! I would thoroughly recommend watching this band"
