ZULA Presents jazz improvisers Zero Point, from New York. The quartet features Daniel Carter saxophones, trumpet, clarinet, flute, piano, with Marius Duboule guitars; Michael Bates double bass; Deric Dickens drums.  http://zeropoint-music.com/
“An amalgam of free musical talents” – Chris Searle, Morning Star (UK)
“A refined brand of freedom” – Bruce Lee Gallanter, DMG (US)
“Beyond the ordinary” – John Sharpe, NYCJR (US)

Zero Point‘s music is entirely improvised, sometimes giving the impression of a known melody or a sound mass, similar to what the spectral music can evoke. Just like Ornette Coleman, Albert Ayler and Eric Dolphy the musicians of this band can also be deeply anchored in the tradition of blues and bebop, which resurfaces in a pictorial and contrapuntal way.
