“Ascension”, released in 2008, is Steve Bingham’s second solo album. Here he moves away from playing every note himself, which he had done on “Duplicity”, and has several guest artists, most notably on the Intro and Outro tracks, which were edited from a live totally improvised concert with Improvizone, a London-based improvising collective.
The album also includes Steve’s trademark eclectic mix of classical – from Telemann to Bartok – and non-classical – covers of Led Zeppelin and Jeff Beck.
On “Scatterbrain” – Phil Toms (arranger and double bass), Stefan Pugh (djembe)
On “Intro” and “Outro” – Michael Bearpark (guitar), Andrew Booker (electronic percussion), Nick Cottam (bass guitar), Andrew Ostler (live sound processing)
