Artist Biographies:

"Trevor Charles Watts (born 26 February 1939 in York) is an English jazz and free-improvising alto and soprano saxophonist. He is largely self-taught, having taken up the cornet at age 12 then switched to saxophone at 18. While stationed in Germany with the RAF (1958-63), he encountered the drummer John Stevens and trombonist Paul Rutherford. After being demobbed he returned to London. In 1965 he and Stevens formed the Spontaneous Music Ensemble, which became one of the crucibles of British free improvisation. Watts left the band to form his own group Amalgam in 1967, then returned to SME for another stretch that lasted until the mid-1970s. Another key association was with the bassist Barry Guy and his London Jazz Composers' Orchestra, an association that lasted from the band's inception in the 1970s up to its (permanent?) disbandment in the mid-1990s.

Though he was initially strongly identified with the avant-garde, Watts is a versatile musician who has worked in everything from straight jazz contexts to rock and blues. His own projects have come increasingly to focus on blending jazz and African music, notably the Moiré Music ensemble which he has led since 1982 in configurations ranging from large ensembles featuring multiple drummers to more intimate trios. He has only occasionally recorded in freer modes in recent years, notably the CD 6 Dialogues, a duet album with Veryan Weston (the pianist in earlier editions of Moiré Music). A solo album, World Sonic, appeared on Hi4Head Records in 2005.

Watts has toured the world over numerous times, run workshops, received grants and commissions, and he has collaborated with some of the great jazz musicians including Archie Shepp, Steve Lacy, Don Cherry and Jayne Cortez. As of 2011, he continues to travel and toured North American with Veryan Weston."

"United kingdom percussionist Jamie Harris, who loves to bang in fairly portable products including congas, djembe, and darbouka, is most beneficial known for performing within a duo setting using the great saxophonist Trevor W. Appearing out of a history of free of charge improvisation where his early companions were radical vendors of noise such as for example fellow saxophonist Evan Parker and guitarist Derek Bailey, W amazed many listeners by changing the frame-up of his improvising configurations in order that his accompaniment will be created generally by percussionists, especially people that have Afro-jazz leanings. W and Harris started their relationship - known basically as the Duo - during 1999. Viewers all over have noticed this combination, regarded by many enthusiastic listeners to become the best distillation of W' fascination with rhythmically billed sax and percussion improvisation. Harris provides traveled along with his old coach to gigs in the Dominican Republic, Barbados, Brazil, Chile, Peru, New Zealand, and Australia, not forgetting america, Canada, and European countries. This isn't the same Jamie Harris who has saxophone in Florida rings Mr. Eliminated and Afro Components."
