Trevor Watts & Jamie Harris Duo (GB)

Trevor Watts: alto, soprano saxophone
Jamie Harris: congas, darabuka

A brand new set of music from this acclaimed duo featuring whirling rhythms and soaring melodies. Saxophonist Trevor Watts first came to prominence in the 60s as an original member of 'The Spontaneous Music Ensemble' (Paul Rutherford, John Stevens, Kenny Wheeler, Evan Parker). He has played alongside Steve Lacy, Archie Shepp, Steve Swallow and Don Cherry among others. His 'Moire Music and Moire Drum Orchestra' featured musicians from Europe and Africa playing what later came to be termed as 'World Music'. Our duo continues in the Moire tradition, mining the rhythmic music of the world for its inspiration. (Jamie Harris)
