El Mar de Nubes
Tori Freestone - tenor saxophone, violin and vocals (track 9)
Dave Manington - double bass
Tim Giles - drums
The natural phenomenon of the Canary Islands’ ‘sea of clouds’ is an exhilarating experience – a highland ascent which rewards with views across the shifting stratocumulus ocean surrounding El Teide (the highest point in Spain) and her neighboring summits. It’s a landscape which has proved endlessly inspirational for tenor saxophonist and composer Tori Freestone, and a special impetus for El Mar de Nubes, her third trio album with double bassist Dave Manington and drummer Tim Giles.
Tori is available for online lessons for saxophone and improvisation.
“Freestone has caused a stir far beyond the UK… an impressive, original and formidable trio”
