MEETINGS WITH REMARKABLE SAXOPHONISTS

LONDON: Vortex

TUE 14TH OCT, 2014 8.00pm

Following the critical acclaim for Prévost’s bold series of recorded concerts in 2011, join us for a unique monthly series of concerts, revisiting the recordings and discovering how the music has evolved.

October 14th
Bertrand Denzler tenor saxophone, John Edwards double bass Eddie Prévost drums

“Bertrand Denzler shares a mastery of what are sometimes referred to as extended
techniques; he can also pursue a musical vision that is profoundly internalized, whether
focused on micro events or the development of hypnotic states ... Each of the two half-hour
pieces – “All-in-All (en tout et pour tout),” parts 1 and 2 – goes through numerous mutations, but they’re driven along by Prévost’s fiercely propulsive drumming...This brings out a particularly forceful side of Denzler, who here sounds like a none-too-distant cousin of Sonny Rollins...Meanwhile John Edwards...often emerges as the most melodically inventive member of the group, whether finding unlikely figures to contribute to a
dialogue or bowing high-pitched whistles against Denzler’s elemental honks. If risk and
surprise are the lifeblood of improvised music, this album succeeds admirably. It’s just
as successful as a free jazz power trio disc.” Stuart Broomer, Point of Departure
