Estraven

Odd-time palpitations, Eastern tinged melodies and full-throttle improv make up the sound of London based band Estraven.

Their debut album Ignored Advice, which was released in March 2022, features all original compositions that stem from bassist composer Chris Hyde-Harrison’s love of jazz, post-rock and various world musics. Collectively the band share a love of modern jazz that includes the music of Ben Wendel, Ari Hoenig and Mark Turner.

melody”

The band includes rising star saxophonist Duncan Eagles, well known for his work with critically acclaimed band Partikel.

Saxophonist Duncan Eagles holds the stage with his attractively dry tone, sharpness and the
urgent ferocity of his tenor improvising.
