Monthly Vortex residency with master of free improvisation, Evan Parker.
Foxes Fox is Evan Parker on saxophone, Steve Beresford on piano, John Edwards on bass and Louis Moholo-Moholo on percussion.
The group first came together as a quartet in 1998 and recorded an album Live at the Vortex in this very club. The quartet’s unrelenting excitement and momentum is a thing to behold; that they can consistently generate this live is incredible. If Foxes Fox were a rock band, it would doubtless be labeled a "super group" as all four members are among the very best players in their fields. However, this is an improvising group so any notions of "stars" must be dispelled in favour of collective music making and interaction. And the quartet delivers exactly that right from the start.
"If you've ever been tempted by free improvisation, Parker is your gateway drug." Stewart Lee
