"The Persons was a group based on the idea of harmonically interlocking electric guitar riffs and grooves.

We first performed in NYC in the late '70s with Dan Licht, Danny Petrow, James 'Sprocket' Royer and myself.

Subsequent tours were done in Northern Europe with guitarists Nick Kirgo, Franky Doublas, bassist Eric Calmes, and 'cellis Ernst Reijseger.

After two previous recordings, this is a recording of the last incarnation of the group"-Michael Moore, from the liner notes

Artist Biographies:

"California native Michael Vatcher, now residing in Amsterdam, quickly progressed from hitting household furniture to taking vibraphone and snare drum lessons as a child. In California, he played with reedist Michael Moore, with whom Vatcher has had a long musical relationship, John Handy, and Terry Gibbs. After spending a year in New York City, Vatcher moved to Holland in 1981.

Since arriving in Holland, Vatcher has played with such groups as the Tristan Honsinger Sextet, the Martin Altena Ensemble, John Zorn, The Ex, Roof (with Phil Minton, Tom Cora, and Luc Ex), and Van Dyke Parks. Vatcher is also a regular accompanist with the School for New Dance Development in Amsterdam, and has an ongoing musical relationship with dancers Katie Duck and Eileen Standley."
