Eddie Prevost
Drummer and percussionist Eddie Prvost has spent a career devoted to the outer reaches of the music. In the forty-odd years he's been musically active he has been a key member of the free improvisation group AMM as well as a band leader in his own right, leading units dedicated to mining a musical seam closer to free jazz than free improvisation as such.

For part of that time he has also run Matchless Recording & Publishing, a company perhaps unsurprisingly dedicated to documenting the music he and others have performed, and publishing the writings of those he has worked with, not the least of them being the English composer Cornelius Cardew, himself a charter member of AMM.

AAJ contributor Nic Jones spoke with Prvost about his long career, and forging one's own voice in the area of free jazz.
