Matthew Halsall and Nat Birchall - Modal Gondwana



Matthew Halsall and Nat Birchall Modal Gondwana

This mix is an absolute bliss when night comes. If you are in jazz - and especially modal jazz - Alice/John Coltrane, Sun Ra and Pharoah Sanders' legacy, you can't be unaware of trumpeter Matthew Halsall and saxophonist Nat Birchall. In four years only they've released three albums each (separately but playing on each other's albums) through Matt's independant own label Gondwana records, building a superb catalog of soulful and hypnotic music. We've just done a long interview with those Mancunians (read it here) and Matthew Halsall has cooked this exclusive gem in which he shares horns with his accomplice.
