JIM BLACK & ALASNOAXIS Chris Speed - tenor sax/clarinet, Hilmar Jensson - guitars, and Skúli Sverrisson - electric bass.

March 2020

“Consider a collision of Jan Garbarek, 1950s cool jazz, the Dutch avant-garde, Bill Frisell, a high-school rock band and Black Sabbath, and you might be somewhere near Alas No Axis.”
-John Fordham, The Guardian, UK

Jim Black has been at the forefront of a new generation of musicians bringing jazz into the 21st century. In addition to being one of the most influential drummers of our time, he is also the leader of one of the world's most forward-thinking bands, AlasNoAxis, featuring his longtime collaborators Chris Speed - tenor sax/clarinet, Hilmar Jensson - guitars, and Skúli Sverrisson - electric bass.

With a total of 6 albums released and almost 20 years after their debut album, AlasNoAxis will celebrate their anniversary with a European tour in March 2020 that will feature music never performed before from their last release Antiheroes, some of their classic hits, and brand new songs that they will record at the end of their tour to complete a three album set of new songs, a live album from the tour, and an album of complete improvisations from these masters of their own genre. Be part of it, booking now….
