The multi-reedist releases his new album Gemini on 12 January 2024 on Ubuntu Music with a live launch at The Vortex on 24 January 

Composer/saxophonist and podcaster/filmmaker Rob Cope follows his critically acclaimed Gods of Apollo with Gemini, featuring 12 original compositions specially written for musicians who have inspired him over the years: Andy Scott on tenor saxophone, Liam Noble on piano and Paul Clarvis on drums. The album title refers to two coexisting duos brought together for the recording.

Speaking about the album Cope said: “This project is deeply personal reflection of what music and musical collaboration means to me, and how important the passing of knowledge is from teacher to student.”

Rob explains his choice of collaborators: “For this record, I am joined by my great friend and saxophone teacher Any Scott, whose playing, compositional creativity and freedom of express through both contemporary and improvised music I have always admired. The great improvising duo of Liam Noble and Paul Clarvis adds a dimension that celebrates true spontaneity, energy and colour. For me, music should be fun to play but also challenging and I wanted to combine my love of difficult, contemporary saxophone music with improvisation, and hopefully contribute to the repertoire in a unique way.”
