Matthew Tavares and Leland Whitty - best known for their roles within pioneering jazz band, BADBADNOTGOOD - present their collaborative album.
Visions was almost entirely performed and recorded in one take during an intense studio session. The record is a partly composed, partly improvised suite of free-flowing music intended to be enjoyed as a complete body of work. Tavares plays piano and guitar, Whitty the saxophone and flute, and the duo are joined by Julian Anderson-Bowes on bass and Matthew Chalmers on drums. The album has received advance support from Gilles Peterson on his BBC 6 Music radio show.
Matthew Tavares and Leland Whitty are Grammy-winning artists and achieved international acclaim with BADBADNOTGOOD; Tavares was one of the band’s founders before amicably departing in 2019, whilst Whitty remains an active member. Beyond BADBAD, the pair’s credits include music with Kendrick Lamar, Little Simz, Kali Uchis, and Kaytranada, plus Tavares' 2018 debut solo album Déjàvu and production work for Travis Scott, Taylor Swift, Snoop Dogg, Ghostface Killah, and others.
