Keith, Michael / Oswald, John / Turner, Roger: Number Nine (Emanem)
Label: Emanem    
Released in: Great Britain    


Michael Keith writes: "In the fall of 2003 I went to see a group featuring Roger Turner - Konk Pack - here in Toronto. He is beyond exciting to watch and listen to, and has since become without a doubt as much an influence on my playing as the usual other guitarists/horn players etc... I asked Mr Turner if he would like to do another gig while he was in town and he agreed. We played at a small venue in Toronto's west end called Mitzi's Sister, where we were joined by two long time improvisers from town - Michael Snow and Paul Dutton from CCMC.

In 2004 I arranged for Roger to come stay in Toronto for a couple of weeks, lining up as many shows as I could. One performance included John Oswald, another member of CCMC. We easily fell together and I think we all agreed that there was something special happening.

I had been a fan of John Oswald's for many years, not only through his work with CCMC and countless other improvisors but through his mind-boggling Plunderphonics.

In April 2005, Roger again made the trip to Toronto. After a few gigs as a trio we went into the studio, and within a few days Roger was on his way home to London. In May 2005 the three of us performed at venues in France and Italy. Over the course of our journey we have played together a total of seven times.

Listening to the CD, at this point, gives me a good feeling. The personality and musical history of each musician is clearly discernible to me. Even my past as a blues/rock musician seems to rear its ugly head at times!

It was a privilege to record with two of my favourite musicians and I hope you enjoy listening to the results."-Michael Keith
