More than fifteen years ago Peter Rechniewski introduced me to the music of Los Angeles based pianist/composer Horace Tapscott. I had already come under the spell of Cecil Taylor after hearing him play at the Brecon Jazz Festival in the early 1990s, and I had been introduced to the music of the Chicago based AACM through hearing Myra Melford play at the North Sea Jazz festival. Tapscott provided one more important link in a connection between Thelonious Monk and free jazz.
His music is a wonderful celebration of the human spirit, full of energy and expressive openness…a great stepping-off point for musical exploration.
We are really looking forward to playing Tapscott, and some new music of our own, and hope you can make it along to listen!
