The Spotted Dog Sessions are a perfect setting for Atlas with guests Sara Colman and John O Gallagher.
“Atlas was one of the surprise hits at Manchester Jazz Festival 2017. Rebecca is, with Atlas, evolving a true band spirit, which audiences relish. There’s an edginess here in the writing and performance that keeps you longing for the next note, and the perfectly-pitched electronics are critical to her wide-ranging, searching compositions, not afraid of melody nor afraid to push it to its limits. Nick Malcolm – the perfect foil for Rebecca’s luminous harmonies – conveys and extends those melodies with such a persuasive combination of rawness and worldliness. The result is open and highly-charged, and proves how Atlas embodies the progressive energy of British jazz right now.” (Steve Mead, Artistic Director, Manchester Jazz Festival)
