About

Eternal Triangle play the music of Trevor Watts, compositions originally inspired by rhythmic structures from Africa and South America as well as jazz and European musical forms.

The trio is built on two duos: Veryan and Trevor first played together in Trevor’s “Moiré Music” in the early 1980s and since then have had a long collaboration in the ‘Dialogues’ project where their work as open improvisers was explored together for many years worldwide. The second duo consists of Jamie and Trevor where Jamie was involved in Trevor’s ‘Celebration Band’ in the 2000s and later they were involved in a very successful duo touring worldwide and recording several CDs. The third duo with Veryan and Jamie is yet to be explored!

In July 2021 the three musicians began working together on some beautiful new pieces specifically conceived by Trevor. The development of these compositions, for instance, can happen during rehearsals or during a concert. Any player in the group can discover something new within each piece, and therefore the compositions are ever changing. The strengths of this trio are like the durable and inert strength of a triangle, where each side supports the other – ‘Eternal Triangle’. This is a music with a depth that is both expansive and honest.

Trevor has played many major Festivals with his previous Moire Music/Moire Music Drum Orchestra/Amalgam and the two duos. These include San Francisco Jazz Fest/Berlin Jazz Fest/Singapore Fest of the Arts/Montreux Jazz Fest/Moers Jazz Fest/Glastonbury Fest/Womad Fest/N Zealand Fest of the Arts/Khartoum Fest/July 4th World Jazz Fest Washington DC (twice)/Vancouver Jazz Fest/London Jazz Fest/Glasgow Jazz Fest/Sao Paulo Jazz Fest/Gulbenkian Fest Lisbon/Monterey Jazz Fest/St Lucia Jazz Fest West Indies/ etc, and tours all around the World many times and so on. His credentials have been proven many times over, having been on the scene since 1966. Eternal Triangle is his latest development.
