Mammal Hands are a trio of like-minded musicians: Nick Smart (piano), Jesse Barrett (drums and percussion), and Jordan Smart (saxophones). Drawing on influences from Steve Reich to Bonobo and Pharoah Sanders to The Cinematic Orchestra, alongside elements of North Indian and African music, they produce their own beautiful, inimitable music – at times wistful and melancholic and sometimes raucous, catchy and explosive, blending thoughtful compositions with spontaneity and interplay. On the road they have hypnotized audiences from Montreal International Jazz Festival to Ronnie Scott’s, Mostly Jazz Festival to King’s Place London and have received support from Jamie Cullum, Gilles Peterson and Bonobo. They were signed to Gondwana Records by Matthew Halsall and have released their sublime debut album, Animalia, to critical acclaim in 2014.
The second album ‘Floa’ was released in spring 2016 on Gondwana Records to critical acclaim, the group toured the UK, Europe, Canada and the USA, with sold out dates in London, Paris, New York, Vancouver, Istanbul and Berlin.
The groups will release their third record Autumn 2017 and will be touring extensively.
