Chris Bowden’s Unlikely Being

Formed in late 2017 Unlikely Being is the uber-exciting group led by saxophonist/composer/arranger Chris Bowden.  This standout quartet features Jim Watson on piano and keys, Chris Dodd on bass and Neil Bullock on drums.

Bowden takes the listener on innovative roller-coaster of a ride of a journey through his eventful life experiences through his music..  The Unlikely Being album draws on Bowden’s multi-faceted material from his cult classic albums Time Capsule (Soul Jazz Records) and Slightly Askew (Ninja Tune), along with music from the infamous The Incredible Death of Cash Bodean commission from Birmingham Jazz (unreleased).

Hints of Bowden’s work with The Herbaliser, 4-Hero and The Heritage Orchestra are evident throughout, yet it is a timeless optimistic jazz-fuelled quality in the saxophonist’s new compositions that really sing out loud.
