    “ comfortable and fearless as a duo can get” Modern Drummer (Dave Hassell-Andy Scott Duo)

    The Dave Hassell and Andy Scott Duo, comprising tenor saxophonist Andy Scott and percussionist Dave Hassell, recently undertook an adventurous collaboration with Mexican percussionist Evaristo Aguilar and photographer William Ellis. Travelling deep into the Mexican rainforest, the quartet embarked on a journey that would take them to LasPozas, home to the late English eccentric and surrealist architect, Edward James.

    The group spent several days playing and recording in the beautiful and dangerous surroundings of Las Pozas, described as a “surreal Eden”, with its soaring edifices of coloured concrete, enormous sculptures of hands, serpents and exotic flowers, and grand parapets in the sky. They then returned to Tampico to record the CD Naked Footprints, featuring musical improvisations based on the different sculptures. The group is reforming specially for this UK tour, and the concert will feature music from the CD accompanied by projected images of Las Pozas.

    More information including dates and venues can be found at where there is also a three-minute YouTube trailer about the project on the home page.
