Colin Towns’ new six piece band released their debut album ‘Stand Well Back’ in Germany on the 13th May 2011.

Formed in 2010 with German and UK musicians, the writing/recording took two years to complete. Featuring Mark Lockheart (Polar Bear, Loose Tubes), Chris Montague (Troyka, Kit Downes), Benny Greb (Peter Wölpl, Ron Spielman), Stephan Maass (Randy Brecker, Kruder & Dorfmeister), and Edward Maclean (Peter Fox, Nils Wülker).

Blue Touch Paper has no barriers “rarely does a piece of music demolish the well known conceptions of sound and structure.”

Jazz, rock, film, classical, electronic etc - it’s all of these but none of these. Leave your expectations behind - this is not a predictable band!

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
