Artist Biographies:

"Paul Dunmall was born 1953, Welling, Kent; saxophones, clarinets, bagpipes, miscellaneous wind instruments.

As told to Watson (1989), Paul Dunmall was a working class lad from Welling who left school at 15 and spent two years repairing instruments at Bill Lewington's shop in Shaftesbury Avenue, London. He turned professional at 17 and, following two years touring Europe with a progressive rock band (Marsupilami), joined the Divine Light Mission, a spiritual movement led by Guru Maharaj Ji and moved from London to an ashram in America. He told Isham (1997), 'I moved to an ashram full of musicians - a music ashram - but it was still spiritual practice. That gave me a spiritual understanding through meditation, Coltrane's music, and all the rest of it, led me to that, and that's been a fundament in my life ever since - that I can actually sit down and meditate and forget my body. I realise how important meditation is in my life... but I don't do it so much these days.' During the three years he lived in America, Dunmall played with Alice Coltrane (in a big band with the Divine Light Mission) and toured for twelve months with Johnny 'Guitar' Watson.

Back in England, he played with Danny Thompson and John Stevens as well as folk musicians Kevin Dempsey, Martin Jenkins and Polly Bolton and then, in 1979 he became a founder member of Spirit Level (Tim Richards, piano; Paul Anstey, bass; Tony Orrell, drums), staying with the group until 1989. During his time with Spirit Level, Dunmall joined the two-tenor front line group Tenor Tonic with Alan Skidmore (1985), played and broadcast with Dave Alexander and Tony Moore in the DAM trio (1986) and formed the Paul Dunmall Quartet with Alex Maguire, Tony Moore and Steve Noble (1986).

In 1987 Paul Dunmall joined the London Jazz Composers Orchestra, being a constant member and appearing on all their recorded output from that date onward. The following year the improvising collective quartet Mujician was formed by Keith Tippett, Dunmall, Paul Rogers and Tony Levin and has continued to be a regular performing, touring and recording group, sometimes augmented by other musicians. Dunmall has also played in a trio with Keith and Julie Tippetts and in Keith Tippett's big band Tapestry. Two other duos have also sprung out of Mujician: Dunmall with Tony Levin (two CD releases) and Dunmall in folk-influenced outings with Paul Rogers. Another regular playing partner throughout this period and up until the present includes Elton Dean.

In 1995, two trios were formed, the first with Oren Marshall, tuba and Steve Noble, percussion, the second with John Adams, guitar and Mark Sanders, percussion, these sometimes coming together as a quintet. More recently, Dunmall has played in another reeds/guitar/drums trio with Philip Gibbs and Tony Marsh and there appears to be regular crossover between all these players. The Paul Dunmall Octet was founded in 1997."

Dunmall also has released a large number of albums and a box set on the UK FMR label, in various configurations and instrumentation.

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Paul Dunmall is one of the finest saxophonists we have in Britain today, and is recognised as one of the most creative musicians on the scene. For the last 20 years he has dedicated himself entirely to free improvisation. This DVD tells the whole story, from a boy learning the clarinet at school, right up to his many activities today as a multi-instrumentalist, and includes enlighting video interviews with esteemed music critics such as Steve Lake (ECM Germany), Bruce Gallanter (DMG New York), Bernard Lyons (New York), Phillipe Renaud (IMPROJAZZ France), Mark Medwin (Jazz Times), as well as highly respected musicians such as Hamid Drake, Tony Levin, Phill Gibbs, Keith Tippett, and Paul Rogers etc.

The DVD examines not only his development as a musician, his influences and his musical philosophy, but the wide range of instruments he uses, including bagpipes and invented instruments.

Many music video clips are included, including concerts and performances at Londons 'Vortex', with Danny Thompsons 'Whatever' in Italy, recording with Evan Parker, con- certs with Keith Tippetts big bands and with the recent 'Atmospheres' ensemble. Also included are videos of him as improvising soloist within contemporary classical orches- tras and ensembles with performances for composers Brian Irvine, Edd Bennett, and with one of the most important bands in his career, 'Mujician'. Finally a video from the recent 08 Visions festival in New York with him playing in a trio with world famous American Jazz musicians Andrew Cyrille and Henry Grimes bringing us up to date with this fascinating musicians career!"-FMR
