No date yet but an interesting one this confirmed as an upcoming release by Babel label’s Oliver Weindling. Duarte is a Portuguese composer and guitarist on the London scene for over a decade and a half. I do not know the confirmed personnel for the recording that Babel will put out but the orchestra has included, as you can spot above in the video, an extraordinary array of top talent coming up with a sound that strikes me as Loose Tubes-meets-Sun Ra.

Look: on alto saxophone/soprano/flute there’s Chris Williams from Led Bib; Alto saxophone/flute/piccolo – Julie Kjaer; Tenor saxophone – Rachel Musson; Tenor saxophone – Dan Mays; Bass clarinet – Tom Ward; Baritone saxophone – Joseph Stout; Trumpet – Noel Langley; Trumpet – Yazz Ahmed; Trumpet – Andre Canniere; Trumpet – Henry Spencer; Trombone – Paul Taylor; Trombone – Ed Reiband; Trombone – Raph Clarkson; Bass Trombone – Olivir Haylett; Tuba – Ben Kelly; Bass – Ben Bastin; Keyboards – Danny Keane; and Drums – Jon Scott.
