using new technology as an opportunity to explore and merge aspects of jazz, electronica and traditional Indian musical styles their debut is an imaginative and energetic record unlike anything we’ve heard before.

The band was established when, within the myriad forms of jazz, Hazleton met Alford and begun studying the classical Indian tradition in order to “open [his] ears to new melodic and rhythmic possibilities”. As a lover of all types and styles of music, Liken’s involvement fused together their collective musical journeys, creating Uniting of Opposites. Having been named ‘Young Jazz Musician of the Year’ in 2003, Ben Hazleton is predominantly a jazz double bass player and has played with many of the British Jazz greats, performing regularly with The Tony Kofi Quartet and The Jonathan Gee Quartet.
