THURSDAY'S Jazzsteps visitors Partikel, playing in Arnold's Bonington Theatre, put an interesting twist on the standard jazz format while still honouring the tradition of deep harmony and creative improvisation. Partikel produce a personal, committed and contemporary take on the saxophone trio, led by Duncan Eagles (tenor and soprano saxes). Accompanied by Max Luthert (bass) and Eric Ford (drums), soulful melodies are mixed seamlessly with complex mixed meter vamps and an instantly identifiable energy and band sound, characterised by Eagles' big but flexible tenor sax tone and Ford's colourful, exotic, restlessly creative drumming, the whole grounded by Luthert's powerfully propulsive bass lines.
