I WISH YOU PEACE

PAUL DUNMALL MOKSHA BIG BAND

I Wish You Peace is a landmark recording in the career of one of modern jazz’s emerging giants: British jazz musician Paul Dunmall. To celebrate the British musician’s 50th anniversary in 2003, the BBC enabled Dunmall to fulfill his longstanding dream to compose and record for a big band at Gateway Studios. This gave Dunmall an unprecedented opportunity to assemble and write for the large ensemble of his dreams, which he named the Moksha Big Band after a Hindu word meaning “the supreme liberation of the soul.” Numbering 14 players plus a conductor, the Moksha Big Band includes both established and new talent from the UK free-jazz pool, including Keith Tippett, Tony Levin, Paul Rogers, Chris Bridges, Howard Cottle, Hilary Jeffrey, Gethin Liddington, Simon Picard, Paul Rutherford, John Adams, Mark Sanders, Philip Gibbs, David Priseman and conductor Brian Irvine. Like the best 'energy jazz', I Wish You Peace is an intensely visceral yet spiritual work. The music goes from intensely hot and focused jazz to rowdy 'blowing' from the large ensemble.

THE GREAT DIVIDE

PAUL DUNMALL OCTET

The Geat Divide again straddles the middle ground between modern composed and free jazz. The band includes Paul's tenor sax, Keith Tippett-piano, Simon Pickard-tenor sax, Paul Rutherford & Hilary Jeffries-trombone, Gethin Liddington-trumpet, Paul Rogers-bass & Tony Levin-drums. The band progresses through a six-part program that explores a multitude of moods and styles within the medium of modern improvised jazz. On the final track, an additional 8 players, including Elton Dean, Evan Parker, John Adams & Mark Sanders join the Octet on their musical journey. This is an important addition to Dunmall's ever-growing body of works as well as to the genre affectionately called "Britjazz".

"[They have] the requisite chemistry to become a perennial powerhouse on the international scene." - JazzTimes
