Empirical. Warwick Arts Centre, Coventry. 13 Feb. 2010. BTH 0213
Empirical - Lewis Wright, vibes; Nathaniel Facey, alto sax; Tom Farmer, bass; Shane Forbes, drums.
Empirical, a band of five young unknowns, burst onto the jazz scene in 2007 their album becoming the Jazzwise CD of the year and winning a number of awards and huge acclaim for their live appearances playing post bop with a clear Ornette Coleman influence. Three members of the band moved on in 2008 and the band reformed as a quartet bringing in vibes player Lewis Wright and bassist Tom Farmer.
Their second album shows the strength of the new band being a tribute to Eric Dolphy mixing Dolphy compositions from his 'Out to Lunch' CD and their own original compositions.
"When they emerged in 2007 Empirical made bigger waves and more column inches than any UK jazz ensemble since Courtney Pine's early bands. Their debut album swept across contemporary styles, including funk, gospel and R&B, although the motor that ran it was fuelled by classic bebop, particularly its ecstatic Art Blakey derivatives. In this session the American jazz tradition still energises Empirical, in a revised line-up in which the excellent Nathaniel Facey's alto sax remains dominant but is now in a more laid back dialogue with Lewis Wright's vibraphone. Facey's fascination with the short lived and often overlooked sax and bass clarinet visionary Eric Dolphy shapes the set."

Rush Hour Blues, February 2nd. 2007 : Marcus Byrne Quintet
Chris Bowden is without doubt the finest alto sax player on the Birmingham jazz scene & among the best in the country. Tonight from the moment he put the horn to his lips he was firing on all cylinders producing inventive, committed, powerful jazz. It was a pleasure to have witnessed him at work...
