Esoteric Antenna label is pleased to announce the release of the new album by internationally acclaimed British saxophone and flute player and
composer Theo Travis ‘Transgression’ his first solo album in eight years, with
his band ‘Double Talk’.
Theo Travis – who has worked with
many artists in the Prog, Jazz and Rock worlds such as Gong, Soft Machine
Legacy, The Tangent, Bill Nelson, Keith Tippett and with Robert Fripp in Travis
& Fripp – has put together a band of progressive jazz stars for the record.
Travis is well known for his collaborations with Steven Wilson, appearing on
all four of his solo albums as well as recordings with Porcupine Tree and No
Man and he has been touring internationally with the Steven Wilson Band from
his first solo tour in 2011 up until the current tour.
Transgression was recorded in January at Koolworld Studio and Steven Wilson
applied his studio skills to the album as he mixed and mastered it in his own
studio, just before launching his own ‘Hand Cannot Erase’ world tour. The album
reflects many of Theo’s inspirations, being instrumental and powerful bluesy progressive
electric jazz with a strong 1970s influence.
With influences of King Crimson,
Mahavishnu Orchestra as well as late Talk Talk, and ECM artists such as Terje
Rypdal and Palle Mikkelborg apparent, TRANSGRESSION is a unique album. The
presence of musicians such as Nic France on drums (Steven Wilson’s Grace For
Drowning album, David Gilmour’s Live At
The Royal Festival Hall DVD and Kate Bush,
Robert Wyatt, Alan Holdsworth, and Working Week), Mike Outram on guitar (Steven Wilson, Herbie Mann, Carleen
Anderson, Jacqui Dankworth) and Pete Whittaker on Hammond organ (John Etheridge,
Nigel Price, touring member of The Wonder Stuff and Catherine Wheel), ensures
that TRANSGRESSION is a milestone in modern Progressive Jazz.
