It may seem a long way from the heart of jazz, but as you walk up Brick Lane in Spitalfields, east London, you pass through the shell of the old Truman, Hanbury and Buxton brewery, and underneath its chimney, past the beautifully sculpted motif of a menacing, rising eagle.

Point of Departure

The free jazz comparison applies best in All But, which is the second in Eddie Prevost's Meetings with Remarkable Saxophonists series. As with the other two (one with Evan Parker, the other with Jason Yarde), the configuration is the classic sax-bass-drums trio and Prevost embraces it with gusto. His playing here is as dynamic as his work with AMM but the starting point, volume-wise, is quiet different; he gets quiet, but rarely silent. Above all, he's playing drums!

Point of Departure

All But is the second volume of Matchless’ series Meetings with Remarkable Saxophonists, this time spotlighting Butcher alongside percussionist Eddie Prévost and Guillaume Vitard. Of course Prevost and Butcher are long accustomed to working with each other, the former’s singular blend of momentum and texture a marvelous analogue to the saxophonist’s own playing.
