Polar Bear Join The Leaf Label
Published 1 September 2009 by BWL


We are delighted to announce that acclaimed British "dream jazz" outfit Polar Bear have swelled the ranks of The Leaf Label's international roster. The London-based group, led by drummer Sebastian Rochford (Acoustic Ladyland, Fulborn Teversham, Basquiat Strings) will release their fourth album on Leaf early next year.

Polar Bear's second album, 2005's Held On The Tips Of Fingers, was nominated for The Mercury Prize, and also made a list of '100 Jazz Albums That Shook The World' in Jazzwise magazine.

Alongside Seb Rochford, Polar Bear is Pete Wareham (tenor sax), Mark Lockheart (tenor sax), Tom Herbert (bass) and Leafcutter John (electronics/guitar). The group will be touring extensively in the UK this autumn as well as some dates in Canada, Belgium and the Netherlands.
