Polar Bear

Mega-haired drummer Seb Rochford leads out his double-Mercury-nominated post-jazz quintet. Featuring ex-Loose Tubes saxophonist Mark Lockheart, tenor saxophonist Pete Wareham and 'anti-jazz' electronic injections and indie-rock guitar from Leafcutter John, Polar Bear have been the nucleus for a whole load of exciting jazz-crossover musical activity over the last few years, including Acoustic Ladyland and Wareham's brilliant Melt Yourself Down. Their new album 'In Each and Every One' is an excellent showcase for their high-octane jazz rock, fusion, ambient bliss and dirty grooves, but for maximum effect you simply have to experience them live.
