"The Tony Wilson Sextet was formed in 1990 in Vancouver, BC, to perform original compositions and arrangements by guitarist Tony Wilson. Since 1995 the ensemble's personal has remained constant and consists of the musicians heard on this recording. This is the long awaited second release for the ensemble. Their debut CD Lowest Note was released on Spool in 2001 and received great reviews and was one of the Globe and Mail picks for that year.

The centerpiece of this recording is an arrangement of several sections from the Benjamin Britten composition "Lachrymae". Originally written for viola and piano, the Sextet's version while staying true to the oringinal, take's several approaches to the material, such as, layering melodies over odd time ostinatos, mixing free improv with fixed melodic statements, creating variations using small sections of material and verbatim versions arranged for the sextet's instrumentation. The Sextet creates a distinct sound that will appeal to fans of both free-improv and the contemporary third-stream scene.

The recording is round out with four original compositions by Wilson. "Arpeggio" is based on a polychordal arpeggio that stretches from the bottom to the top of the guitar, with a counter line from the horns. The piece then moves into a free tenor/drum duet with backgrounds from the rest of the ensemble and a reprise of the arpeggio." The People Look Like Flowers at Last", features melodic trumpet by Kevin Elaschuk floating over the harmonic changes of this composition. "Let The Monkeys Dance" a duet for drums and guitar, is a composition that uses short melodic fragments within the improvisation. The cd ends with a variation on the Bill Monroe composition "Working on a Building" a staple in the bluegrass repertoire, featuring a beautiful and intense solo by on tenor saxist Dave Say."-Drip Audio


Artist Biographies:

"Vancouver trumpet player and composer Kevin Elaschuk has different musical groups he leads including the group ESQ, the Elaschuk/Ryga Quartet and the Kevin Elaschuk Quartet with Ross Taggart and also the Kevin Elaschuk Trio. Kevin also plays in the Tony Wilson Sextet, Peggy Lee's Film and Music and the group Soft Morning City. Kevin Elaschuk has some great recordings out and some of my favorites include Breakfast in Kamloops and Casual Coordinates with Kevin's group ESQ and Any Answers with the Elaschuk /Ryga Quartet. He also plays on Tony Wilson's Sextet albums The Lowest Note and The People Look Like Flowers at Last. Kevin has been an important part of the Vancouver music scene for many years and has also teaches jazz trumpet at Capilano University."

"Cellist, improviser, composer Peggy Lee was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario. She studied classical cello, completing a bachelors degree in performance at the University of Toronto as a student of Vladimir Orloff and Denis Brott. She furthered her studies on the cello with lessons with Martha Gerschefski in Atlanta Georgia. In the fall of 1988 Peggy began a year residency with a string quartet at the Banff Centre in Banff, Alberta. It was here that she first became interested in collaborating with artists from different mediums and in veering away from the classical path. This led to a decision to move away from the known and thus to her relocating to Vancouver, B.C. where she now makes her home.

Peggy's first forays into improvisation in Vancouver happened with dancers at the EDAM (experimental dance and music) studio at the Western Front and eventually led to her meeting and joining guitarists Ron Samworth and Tony Wilson in their respective bands; as well as becoming a member of the New Orchestra Workshop, which went on to have interesting and fruitful collaborations with Butch Morris, Wadada Leo Smith, René Lussier, Barry Guy and George Lewis.

Peggy continues to collaborate frequently with Ron and Tony and with her husband, drummer Dylan van der Schyff, as well as with many other longtime musical associates including Dave Douglas, Wayne Horvitz, Robin Holcomb, Veda Hille and Lisa Miller. She also leads or co-leads a number of musical projects: The Peggy Lee Band, Film in Music, Waxwing (with Tony Wilson and Jon Bentley) and Beautiful Tool (with Mary Margaret O'Hara).

She has also collaborated extensively in theatre and dance with companies and artists such as Ruby Slippers, Rumble Theatre, Presentation House, David Hudgins, Peter Bingham and Delia Brett.

In 2005, Peggy received the Freddie Stone Award for integrity and innovation in music and in 2010 she was awarded a Jesse Richardson Theatre Award for outstanding composition."

"Dylan van der Schyff was born in Johannesburg, South Africa in 1970. He now makes his home in Vancouver, Canada, where he lives with his wife, cellist Peggy Lee, and their two children. Van der Schyff attended the schools of music at the University of Victoria and, briefly, McGill University; and he studied military drumming while with the Band of the Ceremonial Guard in Ottawa. He received his MA from Simon Fraser University and is currently engaged in graduate research in music psychology at the University of Sheffield in the UK.

As a performer and producer, van der Schyff has appeared on close to 100 recordings spanning the genres of jazz, electro-acoustic, improvised, experimental and new music; he has performed in almost every major centre in Europe and North America including international festivals in Berlin, Lisbon, Stockholm, New York, Chicago, Montreal, Trento (Italy) and Molde (Norway); and he has collaborated in numerous interdisciplinary projects involving theatre, dance and film. A partial list of notable performance and recording collaborators includes: George Lewis, Joelle Léandre, Dave Douglas, Mark Helias, Peggy Lee, Eyvind Kang, Nicole Mitchell, Brad Turner, Tony Wilson, Wayne Horvitz, Marilyn Crispell, Torsten Muller, Robin Holcolmb, Michael Moore, Ellery Eskelin, Sylvie Courvoisier, Rob Mazurek, Talking Pictures, Ken Vandermark, Paul Rutherford, John Butcher, Tobias Delius, Louis Sclavis, Evan Parker, Mark Dresser, Fred Frith, and Gary Peacock. Van der Schyff has also performed as a sideman with Roswell Rudd, John Zorn, Butch Morris, Misha Mengelberg, Georg Graewe, Oliver Lake, Wadada Leo Smith and the Kenny Werner Sextet with Randy Brecker.

Van der Schyff has served on the music faculty at Capilano University in Vancouver, Canada, since 2009. He also served on faculty at the Banff International Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music between 2002-2005, and at the Vancouver Institute for Creative Music in 2006. Additionally, he has given seminars and workshops at the University of Indiana and at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa. Van der Schyff has appeared on Austrian television and Swedish radio as well as NPR, the CBC and Radio Canada. Articles about his work as an improviser have appeared in publications such as Downbeat, Jazz Times, The Globe and Mail, The New York Times, The Village Voice, The Chicago Reader, The Wire, Coda, and MUZIK."
