Norwegian label Smalltown Superjazz has just announced it will soon release Live at the South Bank, a document of a live session featuring the duo of Kieran Hebden (a.k.a. Four Tet, pictured above) and legendary jazz drummer Steve Reid with Swedish saxophonist Mats Gustaffson. Recorded in 2009 and evocative of the four LPs the pair recorded before Reid's death last year, the set approaches a kind of electronic free jazz, with Reid's complex live percussion providing the bedrock for Hebden's electronic experimentations and Gustaffson's powerful sax work. Live at the South Bank will drop on November 15, but in the meantime, you can check out the artwork below.
