Sloth Racket is a band of improvisers led by baritone saxophone player Cath Roberts. Formed for a Jazz North East commission in 2015, they have since toured annually, released four studio albums and two sets of live recordings, and appeared at numerous UK festivals. In 2022 the band are working on their fifth album for the Luminous label.
‘Watching Sloth Racket perform is a thrilling experience, conveying a palpable sense that the musicians are navigating the scores by the seat of their pants, making real-time group decisions that sculpt the compositions into unique shapes each time they’re played.’
– Daniel Spicer, The Wire, December 2021
