NeWT featuring Silke Eberhard

Jez Nelson presents Edinburgh-based trio NeWt featuring German alto saxophonist and clarinettist Silke Eberhard. Drummer Chris Wallace, guitarist Graeme Stephen and trombonist Chris Greive got together in 2006. After securing funding in 2008 to develop new material with a foreign artist, NeWt began an ongoing collaboration with Eberhard in 2008 that has included an album on the F-IRE label. Influenced by Zappa, electronica, rock and folk, the group makes the most of its unusual line-up of instruments, weaving electronic effects and humour into music shaped by collective free improvisation. Recorded at Matt and Phred's in Manchester.
