“Collector is an opportunity to explore musically all the cultural connections which are part of being a human being, particularly in the 21st century, in somewhere like London, where you do meet everyone from everywhere. If you’re open-minded you’ll have the opportunity to engage with them and find out which bits of each other’s cultures connect and make sense” – Tamar Osborn
The Collocutor debut LP, ‘Instead’, was easily one of my records of the year when it came out in 2014. Gilles Peterson is also a massive fan of the 7 piece ensemble, playing their music on his BBC6 Worldwide radio show and recruiting then to play live at the last bi-annual Sunday Afternoon at Dingwalls session. The follow up to ‘instead’ has been recorded and they are aiming for an autumn 2016 release via Pete Buckenham’s excellent On The Corner set up. All the compositions on the album have been penned by flautist/baritone saxophonist/ensemble leader Tamar Osborn and it has been appropriately entitled ‘The Search’. However, to bring this excellent endeavour to completion they now need your support.
