Helmed by producer and saxophonist Pete Cunningham, Ishmael Ensemble has become a platform to subvert the conventional notions of producer/artist relationships, unsettling genre tags, and transcending the familiar landscape of UK jazz itself. Their new album Visions Of Light follows A State Of Flow which marked them out as an explosive new force in UK jazz having been named The Guardian’s ‘Contemporary Album Of The Month’ and MOJO’s ‘Jazz Album of The Month’, it saw the group perform Maida Vale sessions for both GillesPeterson and Tom Ravenscroft, as well as feature on compilations for Brownswood Recordings and Soul Jazz Records.
