Composer/saxophonist and podcaster/filmmaker Rob Cope follows his critically acclaimed Gods of Apollo with Gemini, featuring twelve original compositions specially written for Andy Scott, Liam Noble and Paul Clarvis, musicians who have inspired him significantly over the years. The album title refers to two coexisting duos brought together.

“This project is deeply personal reflection of what music and musical collaboration means to me, and how important the passing of knowledge is from teacher to student,” explains Cope. “For this record, I am joined by my great friend and saxophone teacher Any Scott, whose playing, compositional creativity and freedom of express through both contemporary and improvised music I have always admired. The great improvising duo of Liam Noble and Paul Clarvis adds a dimension that celebrates true spontaneity, energy and colour. For me, music should be fun to play but also challenging and I wanted to combine my love of difficult, contemporary saxophone music with improvisation, and hopefully contribute to the repertoire in a unique way.”
