Jazzwise

In recent years, it's not been too unusual to catch Eddie Prévost at the drum kit, reconnecting with his roots as an Art Blakey-worshipping young hard bopper. Here, however, he's very firmly back in the once radical territory he helped to carve out as a pioneer of non-idiomatic improv with AMM. Of course, what was once radical and non-idiomatic is now a well-codified language with a 50-year history. The irony is that you're quite unlikely to encounter many surprises here.

Eddie Prévost is the renowned drummer who was a founder member of the legendary improvisation group AMM, back in 1965, and remains the group's only ever-present member. In November 1999, Prévost set up a free improvisation workshop, which met once a week in London, welcoming interested musicians to turn up and improvise together.
