Happenstance first appeared without a name, then played under the joke name the 'Easy Listening Collective' before settling to 'happenstance'. The name is not meant to convey the Cage notion of chance so much as a fortuitous coming together.


Happenstance consists of:


Chris Biscoe (alto & soprano sax, alto clarinet)
Noel Taylor (clarinets)
Guillaume Viltard (bass)
Tom Greenhalgh (drums)
The group have performed together on several occasions, including at Ray's Jazz, Shoreditch Church, the Luna Lounge & Arch1, the latter with Terry Day deputising on drums. The sound clips, repelete with the church's natural reverberation, below were recorded  at their first outing at Shoreditch Church in November 2011..
