For Peter Brötzmann, 40-plus years of playing improvised music has produced - even just on recorded evidence - a list of associates that include just about all the major figures in creative music: Rashied Ali. Cecil Taylor, Han Bennink, Evan Parker, Misha Mengelberg, Anthony Braxton, Marilyn Crispell and Andrew Cyrille. Always characterised as an energy player - and the power-rock setting of Last Exit with Ronald Shannon Jackson, Sonny Sharock and Bill Laswell, did little to disperse this conviction - his sound is one of the most distinctive, life-affirming and joyous in all music. “The huge screaming sound he makes is among the most exhilarating things in the music,” Richard Cook (Jazz Review)

Nasheet Waits is a musician who has an intuitive understanding of the complex rhythmic requirements of modern drumming. His interest in playing the drums was encouraged by his father, legendary percussionist Freddie Waits, who over the course of his career played with Ella Fitzgerald, Sonny Rollins, McCoy Tyner and many other jazz greats.

Waits first gained widespread attention as a member of Antonio Hart Quintet in 1992, and he remains a standing member of Hart’s recording and touring ensembles. Since then, Waits’ discography is a who’s who in jazz: Geri Allen Jaki Byard, Ron Carter, Steve Coleman, Joe Lovano, Jackie McLean, Joshua Redman, Mark Turner and many others. Besides being a member of various bands led by Andrew Hill, Waits has been member of the Fred Herch Trio, and Jason Moran’s Bandwagon, the latter proclaimed as one of the most exciting rhythm sections to emerge in the new millennium. Richard Cook calls the young drummer “... a terse, unflappable player who sounds remarkably mature and seasoned. Waits has the dark, copper-bottomed sound of his creative ancestors."
