The trio of Eddie Prévost (drums), NO Moore (guitarism), and John Edwards (bass) combines improvisation, free jazz, rock, and electronic sound into a sonorous aggregate that avoids collapsing into any one category, being something in its very own right. Propulsive rhythm, new sounds, and energetic improvisation will be called down, with expectations both met and mangled. Check out their upcoming CD on Matchless Recordings.
NO Moore’s guitar playing combines elements extracted from the short history of the electric guitar, from the Blues to Free Improvisation, and combines them with a love of early electronic experimentalism, synthesis, and musique concrète. The result is an often surprising sound world for electric guitar, encompassing both a loose respect for its traditions and an absolute commitment to the new and the consequences that follow.
Eddie Prévost plays with immense fire, grace and invention. Founder of the essential AMM, collaborator of the greatest improvisers internationally, since the 60’s he has kept a continuous contact with the scene and always manages to invent anew his contribution to “meta-music”.
“Prévost’s free drumming flows superbly making use of his formidable technique. It’s as though there has never been an Elvin Jones or Max Roach.” – Melody Maker
“Relentlessly innovative yet full of swing and fire.” – Morning Star
John Edwards is a true virtuoso whose staggering range of techniques and boundless musical imagination have redefined the possibility of the double bass and dramatically expanded its role, whether playing solo or with others. Perpetually in demand, he has played with Evan Parker, Sunny Murray, Derek Bailey, Joe McPhee, Lol Coxhill, Peter Brötzmann, Mulatu Astatke and many others.
“I think John Edwards is absolutely remarkable: there’s never been anything like him before, anywhere in jazz.” – Richard Williams, The Blue Moment
