David Austin Grey is not a man to let the grass grow under his feet. It’s only five minutes ago – or so it seems – that David was presenting a multi-arts  jazz/ballet/illustration project, and his band Hansu-Tori already had a substantial repertoire but that hasn’t stopped him writing new material (butterflies play a part) – and for a new line-up too.

The latest Hansu-Tori has a core trio with David on keyboards and electronics, Nick Jurd on basses, both acoustic and electric, and Jim Bashford on drums. They are joined by two guests: vocalist Anthony Marsden and cellist Isaac Collier.

What do they sound like? And what does the new music written specially for them – “inspired by and reflective of the range of human emotions” according to David – sound like? Well, there’s an easy way to find out. Get along to The Red Lion in Warstone Lane, Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham this evening for 7.45pm, and hear Hansu-Tori Amidst A Swarm Of Butterflies.
