Graviton is the formidable prog-jazz group led by Andrew McCormack drawing on his wide range of influences and demonstrating his talents for composition as well the band’s captivating live performances. The music evades clear category but the pianist always looks to push himself and his fellow musicians to find something new yet accessible.

Scheduled for release in summer 2019 on the fast rising Ubuntu Music label, Graviton’s second album, The Calling follows the storyline of the classic "Hero’s Journey"

The group includes the forefront of the UK contemporary jazz scene with Noemi Nuti on vocals, Josh Arcoleo on tenor saxophone, Tom Herbert on electric bass and Josh Blackmore on drums.

Their music may be best described as a mix of Steve Reich and Tigran Hamasyan, without boundaries.

Having toured extensively in 2018 the band is now reaching new artistic levels that will excite audiences worldwide with this latest offering.

“The highest level of musicianship you could possibly get together in one band.”

JAMIE CULLUM, BBC RADIO 2

“Such a fine, unusual and adventurous record. Congratulations Andrew. Want to hear this live!”

JEZ NELSON, SOMETHIN' ELSE

“Melodically generous…from ethereal Jarrett-like introspection to rhythmically dynamic dances…impressive.”
