Jez Nelson presents a performance by free improvisers Evan Parker, Louis Moholo, John Tchicai and Tony Marsh. Parker has been at the heart of the British and international free-jazz scene for half a century, renowned for his stunning technique and more recently his use of electronics. He is reunited with fellow member of big band The Brotherhood of Breath, South African drummer Louis Moholo. Danish saxophonist John Tchicai is perhaps best known for his role in the explosion of New York free-jazz in the 1960s, including appearing on John Coltrane's Ascension album, and teams up with British drummer Tony Marsh, whose long-term collaborations include with the Mike Westbrook Orchestra and trumpeter Harry Beckett.
