Martin Archer’s Engine Room Favourites is an extraordinary band.
Featuring no less than ten of the finest jazz and improvising musicians from the North of England, Engine Room Favourites play a contemporary music that reconnects with the lost AACM tradition of Anthony Braxton and the Art Ensemble of Chicago. Structured compositions allow space for the individual talents of this all-star band to shine through…They might well be the ultimate lost voices band…
“Archer’s bountiful resourcefulness once again shines radiantly within a large ensemble format…yet another example of his far-reaching proclivities and fertile imaginative powers”
