A stylistically blurry image of two people stood against a sprawling cityscape late at night - a crescent moon shines brightly above them in the sky

‘Same Moon in the Same World’ is a new collaboration series between saxophonist Alex Hitchcock and guitarist Ant Law, with the series taking its name from a line in Haruki Murakami’s 1999 novel Sputnik Sweetheart: ‘…we’re both looking at the same moon in the same world. We’re connected to reality by the same line.’

Recorded remotely across multiple continents in 2020 and 2021, the first album in the series aims to seek connectedness and solidarity with musicians who were kept apart geographically over this time. Featuring guest contributions from vibraphonist Joel Ross, pianist Shai Maestro, bassists Linda May Han Oh, Ben Williams and Jasper Høiby, and drummers Jeff Ballard, Kendrick Scott, Sun-Mi Hong and Eric Harland.

Presented by Jazzata
