Roger Turner is best introduced by this quote from Eugene Chadbourne: “a master drummer who plays modern improvised music with the panache of a classic swing drummer”.
Roger has been playing in areas of music related to, but not always part of, jazz since the 1960s and has an astounding set of credits. Here are just a few: Elton Dean, Alan Silva, Annette Peacock, Lol Coxhill, Toshinoro Kondo, Evan Parker, Cecil Taylor.
Chris Biscoe’s career has included work with many leading composers such as George Russell, Mike Westbrook, Hermeto Pascoal, Chris McGregor, collaborations as diverse as those with Alan Barnes and Evan Parker, bebop, freebop, hardbop, fusion, contemporary, improv and some jazz. Currently leading the Profiles Quartet with Tony Kofi, Disorder at the Border with Ben Davis and members of Chaos collective, and several other projects.
