Let Spin is a collective that forges the progressive post-jazz scenes of London and Manchester, bringing together four top instrumentalists from around the UK; bassist Ruth Goller (Acoustic Ladyland), saxophonist Chris Williams (Led Bib), guitarist Moss Freed (Moss Project) and drummer Finlay Panter (Beats & Pieces Big Band).
Following an electrifying UK tour and an critically-acclaimed debut album, Let Spin are set to bring their imagative mix of riffs, grooves and softer melodies to the EFG London Jazz Festival November.
