USINE=FABRIK=FACTORY. With USINE, British bass player and composer James Banner brings together a collection of European improvisors - all well-established in their own right - to create a sometimes homogenous, sometimes disparate sound-world. The inspiration comes via composed themes based on reworked improvisations, multi- lingual texts that are song, spoken and screamed, as well as the ever-changing world of literature, art, and politics in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. At the core of USINE, the golden thread of the composed runs alongside improvisational freedom, with an appreciation of both the rich history of acoustic jazz music and a recognition of the value that each individual musician and their unique geographical and cultural experience brings to the table.

James Banner's USINE is 45 minutes of unobvious and unpredictable music, created thanks to artists connected by an invisible but at the same time noticeable thread of unbounded agreement – Robert Ratajczak, LongPlay

,,a unique and surprising voice on his instrument... a gifted young composer..." Greg Cohen (Tom Waits, Ornette Coleman, Bob Dylan)

Album released 18.10.2018 by JazzHausMusik (studio time awarded by Berlin State Department for Culture and Europe)

Supported by the Initiative Musik Non-profit Project Company Ltd. with project funds from the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media on the basis of a resolution passed by the German Bundestag.
