All about the Weave

The Weave represent the finest of Liverpool's established jazz scene. After a hiatus of some 7 years their newest project, SNISHOO, sees these talented musicians return to create an exciting collaborative journey.At the heart of this musical endeavor is band leader Martin Smith. He has assembled a network of Liverpool's top players: Anthony Peers (trumpet), Anthony Ormesher (guitar), Tilo Pirnbaum (drums), Rob Stringer (piano), Hugo "Harry" Harrison (double bass), and newcomer Ismael Aasgaard (trombone). Together they blend a diverse array of influences, from jazz icons like Kenny Wheeler and Clark Terry to folk & rock legends like John Martyn and Arthur Brown.

The result is a kaleidoscopic fusion of ideas, energetic and soulful. Formed officially in 2012, these musicians have played together for up to 20 years, yielding a cohesive and refreshing band sound. Since being selected as Northernline Ambassadors in 2013, The Weave have built a strong national reputation through over 50 live shows, including a sell-out performance at the 2014 London Jazz Festival. Their self-titled debut album earned acclaim in the UK and US, with Downbeat magazine listing it as a top release of 2014.
