Transfixing, symbiotic pairing of bassist Neil Charles and drummer Seb Rochford, who've recently been heard collaborating on Rochford's 'Pulled by Magnets' project.

He regularly performs, records and tours with numerous jazz, classical and contemporary music bands and ensembles like alex Hawkins, mingus big band, has played with Terence Blanchard, black top and is a member of the electro-acoustic jazz trio, Zed-U.
