“Two giants of the improv scene...highly recommended” – All About Jazz
For a half-century, British saxophonist Trevor Watts has been a trailblazing pioneer of free improvisation and has built a mighty reputation for having a bold, compelling voice on the sax. He co-founded the legendary Spontaneous Music Ensemble in the mid-’60s, which included other heavyweights such as Derek Bailey and Evan Parker, and has recorded for some of the most important contemporary music record labels, such as Emanem and ECM Records.
Music maverick Veryan Weston is a world-class improvising pianist and composer, demonstrating a rare talent for creating astounding, freely flowing, unexpected musical ideas, brimming with joy and energy. A prolific recording artist and collaborator, Weston has been active since the ‘70s and has worked with notables such as saxophonist Lol Coxhill, percussionist Eddie Prevost and vocalist Phil Minton, and he has been involved with the London Jazz Composers’ Orchestra.
Together, Watts and Weston explore the conversational nature of spontaneous music creation, and they have received glowing praise for their incredible, stunning duets, on both record and in live performances, from media outlets such as The Wire, All About Jazz and Jazz Review. These are two veteran improvisers and virtuoso musicians at the height of their powers.
