This all star group explores Mark’s multi-faceted outlook on music through a new set of original compositions with this bold and unique sounding group .Urgent and exciting grooves and improvising all cleverly crafted together within Lockheart’s unique and memorable melodies. Wide ranging influences from Ellington, Shorter and John Zorn to the Beatles and even Kraftwerk!


“From Loose Tubes to Polar Bear and beyond, Lockheart’s capacity to be ahead of the jazz curve is undeniable. In this new band his combination of lyrical economy and harmonic creativity has found three improvisatory soulmates who clearing know how to make the most of his compositions in their own terms” .
