Hungry Albatross play an eclectic blend of Jazz that includes strong elements of rock and world music however the band still finds space to swing hard. A thematic and tone poem dimension infiltrates the band’s writing which comprises about half of the current repertoire. Some of the tunes that we (Holmes/Rollins) wrote, performed and recorded in a band called “Forecast” in the late 80”s have been re-worked. The rest of the repertoire explores arrangements of Latin, Oriental, Blues, post bop and cool Jazz styles.
Our aim with Hungry Albatross is to share with you some of the music we Love, and can create time to play together. So this is unconditional and without commercial expectation. To this end the music is very much rooted in the Here and Now .
As band leader and prime instigator, it is my sincere wish that these beautiful players get to shine brightly and create some incredible music and space for us all to connect with. If hearing them is as much of a Joy as playing with them, then we’re all in for a big aural treat!
