Continuation is a remarkable work in which the interplay of emotional experience and life motion experienced by band leader Tamar
Osborn [AKA Tamar Collocutor] is channelled and explored by Collocutor.
The band’s third LP assuredly strides forward following the critical acclaim awarded to ‘The Search’ from 2017 from the likes of The
Wire, Vinyl Factory and Gilles Peterson. Continuation is an album about coping with grief and loss/bereavement: The music charts the
many (and sometimes surprising) emotional states encountered, moving from acknowledgement, trying to keep ‘normal’ life going,
the need to sometimes put a pause button on the world/existence and let the waves of feelings crash and roll, sudden anger &
confusion, ﬁnally to moving (perhaps with uncertainty) forward.
Tamar Osborn has led Collocutor through a line-up shift from septet to quintet for Continuation. The modiﬁed line-up creates space
for the musicians to express themselves through the shadows of Continuation's movement. The quintet allows for more group
improvisation, based on just a few motifs and thereby giving the musicians more space to converse. The tracks Lost & Found and in
particular the album’s title track, Continuation (the only piece with 3 horns) hark back to the intricate arrangements of ‘The Search’.
It’s a deeply personal album, the writing of which acted as Tamar's way of processing and understanding experience and the need to channel feeling.
In listening truly ‘Continuation’ bares that rare and precious gift of a morsel of the human experience being illuminated by artistic
