Jez Nelson presents Jim Hart's Cloudmakers Trio in an exclusive session with guest saxophonist Antonin-Tri Hoang. Hart is a founder member of the London-based Loop Collective and has in the last 5 years become established as one of the UK's most exciting vibraphone players. His latest project, Cloudmakers, features American bassist Michael Janisch and regular bandmate Dave Smith on drums. Their music blends the contemporary European tradition with influences such as Thelonious Monk and the New York downtown scene - the band have just released a live album with avant-garde East-Coast trumpeter Ralph Alessi. Here, they team up for the first time with young French saxophonist Antonin-Tri Hoang - a member of cutting-edge large ensemble the Orchestre National de Jazz.
