Tom Challenger (tenor) Ross Stanley (organ) James Maddren (drums) Matt Calvert (electronics)

In just a few short years Ma have carved out a reputation as one of the most interesting of a new wave of electro-jazz outfits. Led by saxophonist Tom Challenger, an improviser and composer and influenced by the likes of Burial and Supersilent, Ma  features fellow Loop collective collaborator, drummer Dave Smith, organist Ross Stanley as well as long term collaborator Matt Calvert on electronics. Within a setting of dubby beats and drones, Ma utilise deceptively simple themes as a launch pad for music that is hugely atmospheric but full of powerful improvisation and unexpected textures. Tickets available from the Nottingham Contemporary shop and Arnold Leisure Centre.
