Last year TDE Promotions presented this trio featuring two key figures of the UK free jazz scene in collaboration with Norwegian drummer Tollef Østvang. The gig was so good that TDE Promotions/Fizzle has helped set up a short tour for them, taking in the prestigious Cafe Oto in London and the Two Ship venue in Hastings.
Saxophonist Trevor Watts is one of the most important British jazz musicians of all time. In the 60s he founded the legendary and influential band Spontaneous Music Ensemble together with drummer John Stevens.
