Two masters of London's free improvising scene - saxophonist Evan Parker and percussionist Eddie Prevost - in a trio with young lion John Coxon on electric guitar and prepared piano, in an impressive and dynamic journey of technique and tone.

Coxon, John / Evan Parker / Eddie Prevost

Coxon, John / Evan Parker / Eddie Prevost: Cinema (Fataka)
Label: Fataka    
Released in: Great Britain    

"Diverse musical elements - coruscating cymbal scrapes, shimmering amplifier hum, melancholy saxophone circlings, sharp hits of snare, string and reed, slow motion guitar riffs, deep tam-tam surges and floor tom rasps, hypnotic prepared piano figures, and hovering fragments of song-like melodies - fracture and coalesce in this single intense improvisation.

Featuring two of the foundational figures of free improvisation alongside a younger arrival, this recording captures the first meeting of this trio. They had all played together before separately, and the combination of familiarity and unfamiliarity proved productive: there's plenty of divergence and convergence here, and plenty of tension too - most interestingly, perhaps, in their differing approaches to repetition and tonality. At times coming uncomfortably close to each other, at times standing far apart, the trio moves inexorably towards a beautiful - and, in its simplicity, startling - conclusion."-Fataka
