Ingrid Laubrock's Sleepthief on Tue 17th November 2009

German born saxophonist Ingrid Laubrock is teaming up with acclaimed UK pianist 

Liam Noble and one of New York's finest drummers, Tom Rainey for an exciting 

brand of new improvised music. Sleepthief play with a wide spectrum of sound, 

rhythm, space and colour whilst maintaining a strong feeling for form. 

Those of you who were lucky enough to see them last year will definitely not want to miss out this year, and if you weren't there, this is your second chance!


"(...) Laubrock's open soundworld made a fascinating contrast. 

Now, characterised by remarkable tonal variation and great empathy with Noble's 

gritty piano textures, the slightly loose sound of their duo came into sharp focus 

when joined by Rainey's atmospheric drumming. Clinking tones from a half-filled 

bottle, scattering sticks like matchwood on his drumheads, or thrashing visually 

graceful arcs above his cymbals, he was a delight both to watch and to hear. A first 

night of this quality augurs well for the days to come.The Times, January 2008 (Alyn Shipton)
