British avant-garde jazz ensemble Led Bib is a progressive, stylistically-varied group that touches on everything from swinging post-bop to skronky free jazz and a healthy dose of neo-prog and noise rock. Formed in 2003 by drummer/composer Mark Holub, the band also features bassist Liran Donin, keyboardist Toby McLaren, and alto saxophonists Pete Grogan and Chris Wiliiams. Drawing on such inspirations as saxophonist Ornette Coleman, avant-garde firebrand John Zorn, free jazz icon Sun Ra, and even '60s psych-rocker Captain Beefheart, Led Bib released its debut album Arboretum on Slam in 2005. The band's sophomore album Sizewell Ten dropped in 2007 on Babel. Since 2005, Led Bib has logged some high-profile gigs including a one-hour live broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and appearance at the North Sea Jazz Festival. Led Bib released its third studio effort, Sensible Shoes, on Cuneiform in 2009. ~ Matt CollarPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
