Pre-order of Highline. You get 1 track now (streaming via the free Bandcamp app and also available as a high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more), plus the complete album the moment it’s released.
The much awaited debut from wonderful Birmingham-born saxophonist Alex Woods, along with his New York/Scandinavian Quartet, for his debut Highline, inspired by three years of living in New York.
Using the classic sax, piano, bass, drums quartet, Highline branches off in new directions of improvisation with strands of folk, blues and classical influences pulling together Alex’s album of adventurous originals.
Featuring Billy Test, piano; Marty Kenney, bass; and Andreas Swendsen, drums. As a group, they transition seamlessly from beautifully melodic ballads to groove based works and energetic swing.

Matthew wears his influences on his sleeve and I openly applaud that...
But to take inspiration from these past-masters is not to copy...Matthew has his own unique voice and vision that moves his music forward to new horizons whilst providing that continuity with history. This is very important, I think...it’s how we keep this music alive. Listen to Matthew and then undertake a voyage of discovery into what has gone before. John Cratchley
