AuB

AuB (pronounced ORB) is the eponymous debut album from the London based quartet masterminded by saxophonists Tom Barford and Alex Hitchcock. United by a fiery desire to make music together, their debut is progressive, uncompromising and relentless in its pursuit of the new. It’s a record that defines them as exciting, young and creative musicians. As Alex Hitchcock explains:​“Wetriedfromthestarttofindaradicallynew, ambitious approach to the quartet and a unique identity, playing to and combining both our strengths”. The band name and album title allude to their collaboration as the driving force. It originates from the points on a Venn diagram, the unity of A and B, at which the combined forces are greater than the sum of their parts. AuB represents the synergies created through the development of the collective voice and sound: when two minds come together with a common purpose to create something collectively greater.
