"Three veterans of the British music scene join forces to record a very special CD that consitutes the joy of British free music. The trumpeter Jon Corbett, bassist Nick Stephens and drummer Louis Moholo-Moholo set an outstanding example of the art of musical improvisation. The music is a rare blend of intellectual play and passion which is not always present in the British free jazz. All three demonstrate both muscle and fire and melodic virtuosity."-Leo Records



"I recently reviewed Calling Signals' release, where one can hear Jon Corbett's and Nick Stephens' playing and here they are again with addition of Louis Moholo-Moholo to please our ears.

All three of them mainstays of british free music scene for a while so there's nothing to be proven or revealed here - and they can just go for it as they feel.And they definitely do so, the playing is intense and vivid. The music is raw and energetic and there are no artificial confines to be respected, just a joyfull ride, an act of communication and creation with the three sharing the reponsibilities and the rewards of creating and stustaining the musical narration.

While the music is as focused as one could expect - a necessary quality in improvised music, there's also this loose feeling, the freewheling spontaneity to it and joyfull excitement. Within the sharp and short trumpet lines by Jon Corbett, muscular bass playing by Nick Stephens (I love his bow work) and polyrythmic dances courtesy of Louis Moholo there's an entire variety of impressive personal statements yet it is feeling of unity in this trio that makes this music work.

With enough ideas to run through four extended improvisations (totalling nearly 70 minutes worth of music) this band plays with conviction and immagination and the energy that gives this music a welcomed drive and pulse, nonetheless the lack of fixed rhythm or melody. And while it's free and abstract in nature it's never too far from jazz, be it thanks to the Corbett's vibrant trumpet's sound or Moholo's drumming that, while not directly, hints at his african roots with all the percussive magic one can call upon.Hard not to enjoy !"-The Jazz Alchemist

Artist Biographies:

"Louis Tebogo Moholo (born 10 March 1940), is a South African jazz drummer.

Born in Cape Town, Moholo formed The Blue Notes with Chris McGregor, Johnny Dyani, Nikele Moyake, Mongezi Feza and Dudu Pukwana, and emigrated to Europe with them in 1964, eventually settling in London, where he formed part of a South African exile community that made an important contribution to British jazz. He was a member of the Brotherhood of Breath, a big band comprising several South African exiles and leading musicians of the British free jazz scene in the 1970s and is the founder of Viva la Black and The Dedication Orchestra. His first album under his own name, Spirits Rejoice on Ogun Records, is considered a classic example of the combination of British and South African players. In the early 1970s, Moholo was also a member of the afro-rock band Assagai.

He has played with many musicians, including Derek Bailey, Steve Lacy, Evan Parker, Enrico Rava, Roswell Rudd, Irène Schweizer, Cecil Taylor, John Tchicai, Archie Shepp, Peter Brötzmann, Mike Osborne, Keith Tippett, Elton Dean and Harry Miller.

Moholo returned to South Africa in September 2005, performing with George Lewis at the UNYAZI Festival of Electronic Music in Johannesburg. He now goes under the name Louis Moholo-Moholo because the name is more ethnically authentic. South African promoter Slow Life in March 2017 at the Olympia Bakery in Kalk Bay, Cape Town produced a show where Louis performed along with Mark Fransman, Reza Khota, Keenan Ahrends and Brydon Bolton."
