Ed Lucas

Edward Lucas is a trombone player from London. His playing is a process of investigation into the sonic and collaborative possibilities of the instrument. Over the years he has had many associations with improvising musicians in London and beyond; several encountered at Eddie Prévost’s improvisation workshop and John Russell’s Mopomoso series. He co-runs (with Daniel Kordik) the label and concert series ‘Earshots Recordings’ developed through their long running synth / trombone duo. His latest release as part of the group KILT (Daniel Kordik / Ken Ikeda / Edward Lucas) is available on Earshots. He has an upcoming CD release with guitarist Daniel Thompson on the Inexhausitble Editions label.
