Josephine Davies tenor & soprano saxophones Tim Giles drums Dave Whitford bass
Satori is a contemporary jazz trio from Perrier Award winning saxophonist Josephine Davies, featuring drummer Tim Giles and bassist Dave Whitford. The deliberate omission of a chordal instrument leaves a more spacious texture for the three musicians to explore the basic compositional elements Davies offers. This is a new direction for her, and one that showcases her creativity and strong melodic improvisational approach. Although the focus of this band is on group interaction, exploration, and freedom from traditional set structures, Satori is also an accessible and hugely dynamic jazz ensemble. Their debut album was released in 2017 on Whirlwind Recordings to wide acclaim.
