Vega Trails is a new project from double-bassist and composer Milo Fitzpatrick, a founder member of Portico Quartet and features saxophonist Jordan Smart (Mammal Hands, Sunda Arc) in a richly powerful duo bringing together two powerfully charismatic musicians. The project was born out of a desire to bring the elements of bass and melody to the foreground in their rawest form. Deeply soulful and melodic Vega Trails draws on folk, jazz, world and classical influences and brings together two open-mined and communicative musicians, to tell beautiful winding stories together and to create something soulful and new. Their debut album Tremors in the Static is out now on Gondwana Records.
Support comes form pianist and composer Taz Modi, a member of Submotion Orchestra and Portico Quartet to play his own beautiful compositions.
