A short film introducing the project

 

‘… an engrossing listen, an expansive sound collage, ideas are exchanged at light speed – Sharkey and Sanders seem to think as one…’

Jazzwise ****

‘…dense, complex and thoroughly compelling music…’

VERYAN WESTON

Veryan Weston (born 1950) was awarded ‘Young Jazz Musician of 1979’ by the Greater London Arts Association. In the ’80s, Veryan worked internationally with Lol Coxhill (with whom he made his first recordings – Ogun 525 and Random Radar), the Eddie Prévost Quartet and Trevor Watts – an innovator who, in his band Moiré Music, used a unique combination of African rhythmic structures with the European musical tradition (Arc 02). Weston also melds elements of modern composition with contemporary improvisation and this can be heard in collaborations with Phil Minton, Luc Ex and Hannah Marshall, but the thread throughout his work has been primarily improvisation which reveals new aspects of an ever-changing musical identity depending on who he is playing with.
