  • Ty, Jason Yarde & Hannah Peel Session

    For this end-of-year session, we invited rapper and poet Ty, saxophonist/composer Jason Yarde, and singer-songwriter Hannah Peel to record together for the first time. Max Reinhardt proposed that they devise material around the theme of Italo Calvino’s book 'If on a winter’s night, a traveller'. When they met at Maida Vale Studio 3, Hannah had a new arrangement of an old song from The Twilight Zone (Come Wander With Me) for her music box (she punches the holes in the paper strip by hand), to which Jason added soprano sax. Ty came up with a Christmas story with a twist, that developed into a mini radio play with sound effects and acting from the trio. Jason asked Hannah to get her trombone out for a groove-based number he called Winter Rubadub, and for their last number, they reworked Come Wander with spoken word from Ty and a lush orchestration of multi-tracked saxes.
