13/04/2017 – this week, a new viral video "Buy It" – https://www.facebook.com/76072565180/videos/10158523319860181/

This fluid live music performance reassures with behaviour and sound while it challenges with thoughts and words. With two recent viral clips shared close to a thousand times with 55K minutes viewed, the show delivers a distinct political philosophy through hilarious and provocative honesty. The quartet performance described as “The best artistic event I have ever experienced in my life” on the Manchester Jazz Festival website has also toured solo internationally. Collaborating with a fresh ensemble of musicians each month in his East London development residency ‘Peach’, saxophonist and spoken word artist Alabaster DePlume is engaging communities in the production of his 4th album The Corner of a Sphere. Instrumentals, songs and words respond to musicians, audience and occasion, in celebration of the individuality of all present.

“Totally unique… Very, very brilliant indeed” – Max Reinhardt, BBC Radio 3
“…Majesty” – Q Magazine
“One of my definite favourite saxophone players from this country… one of the most distinctive and personalised sounds on the instrument that I’ve heard in a very very long time” – Shabaka Hutchings

 

“Alabaster is a rare man. Restlessly creative, collaborative and eternally grateful of his part in the game. He has written some of my favourite songs. Part performance poet, part Leonard Cohen, part jazz saxophonist and something of the Ivor Cutler – yet these comparisons mean next to nothing. He will bless a room with his unpredictable presence and all are hypnotised. Do not miss.” – Daniel Green, LAISH, Willkommen & Simple Folk Radio
