This free content includes Play-Alongs of some of the music from their new album, transcriptions and analyses of Potter's solos from their record, and a list of practice techniques for mastering odd time-signatures.
Ben and John Britton have entered the jazz scene confidently with their debut album, Uncertain Living. With a collective approach developed throughout years of playing together, they have arrived to a music that is forward thinking and invites a wide range of listeners. At an earlypoint in life, Ben and John dedicated their lives to music, and their upcoming release is the first offering of their hard work and dedication.
