Free Nelson Mandoomjazz

Free Nelson Mandoomjazz are a three-piece band formed in Edinburgh playing an experimental blend of doom metal and free jazz. Influenced principally by artists such as Black Sabbath, Electric Wizard, Sun Ra, Sonny Rollins, Albert Ayler and Wayne Shorter, they term their music ‘doom jazz’.

Free Nelson Mandoomjazz are a three-piece band formed in Edinburgh playing an experimental blend of doom metal and free jazz. Influenced principally by artists such as Black Sabbath, Electric Wizard, Sun Ra, Sonny Rollins, Albert Ayler and Wayne Shorter, they term their music ‘doom jazz’.

Colin Stewart (bass), lover of everything slow, heavy, and destructive, suggested to Paul Archibald (drums), lover of all things cool, free, and melodic, if they should try and merge these two genres. They soon realised that they had a passion for each others’ music, and sought out Rebecca Sneddon (sax), lover of all things absurd, to make Free Nelson Mandoomjazz.

The band recorded two EPs independently (‘The Shape of Doomjazz to Come’ & ‘Saxophone Giganticus’) before signing to Rare Noise Records. Both recordings showcased the Edinburgh-based musicians in a provocative blend of doom metal and free jazz, unforgivingly heavy with a glacial pace.

The following year came Awakening of a Capital, an evolution of the sound exploring new grounds and new sounds. This year, The Organ Grinder promises to surprise again, with radical new ideas that further the concept of Free Nelson Mandoomjazz‘s music. « hide
