Luke Annesley, alto saxophone | Dan Moore, Hammond organ
A veteran of the London and south-coast jazz scenes, Luke is as comfortable playing from the Great American Songbook as he is in the realm of free improvisation. He has performed classic film scores with the John Wilson Orchestra, played in a quartet with the great guitarist Dave Cliff for a number of years, and has created improvisation-based projects including his quartet Moonscape with trumpet player Jim Howard.
Luke is also a practicing music therapist, working for over a decade in the NHS for Oxleas Music Therapy Service with children and young people. He is a senior lecturer at Bristol University and his publications combine his clinical practice with his career as an improvising musician. He has produced and presented the podcast 'Music Therapy Conversations' for The British Association for Music therapy since 2017.
Dan Moore plays electric/acoustic piano, synthesizers and Hammond organ in a wide range of contexts. He developed his approach while studying contemporary music and performance at Dartington College of Arts. Since then, he has been in demand as a versatile musician, working with a wide range of artists such as Percy Sledge, Anna Calvi, Adrian Utley, Pee Wee Ellis, Fred Wesley, Will Young, Marc Ford, Beth Orton, Tom Jones, Massive Attack, Roni Size and Run Logan Run.
Luke and Dan's duo was formed in Bristol in 2022. With Luke’s compositions as the starting point, their music making is engaging and conversational, fusing a lyrical approach to melody and sparkling improvised dialogue.
