Described by the label as “a companion piece to Journey to the Mountain of Forever” –  one of our favourite albums of 2017 – “full of vehement improvisation and shamanic spiritual free jazz trances”, the 10-track LP was recorded at London venue Total Refreshment Centre in Stoke Newington.

It features a two-drum, two-saxophone, harp and trumpet line-up, with guest appearances by Yussef Dayes on drums, Tori Handsley on harp, Evan Parker on tenor and soprano sax, and Byron Wallen on trumpet.

Alive In The East? is available on limited, 500-copy clear LP and standard black variants.
