Eddie Prévost


Drummer Eddie Prevost was created on June 22, 1942 in Britain. As an adolescent he performed drums in Skiffle and trad jazz rings before showing symptoms of the innovative musician which was developing. After his preliminary contact with his greatest affects Potential Roach and Ed Blackwell, Prevost became captivated by the endless likelihood of improvisation. He started incorporating a variety of nontraditional percussion along with his regular drum package. In 1965 he co-founded the British improv ensemble AMM with saxophonist Leslie Gare and guitarist Keith Rowe. He also started recording with free of charge jazz music artists Evan Parker, Marilyn Crispell, and Paul Rutherford. Within the ’70s and ’80s, Prevost led his very own quartet and documented with Supersession, Resoundings, and Totally free Jazz Quartet. By 1990 he previously formed the Experts of Disorientation with AMM alumni Gare and Rowe while also getting into the techno/ambient world, executing with GOD, Primary, and Ear canal. When he isn’t executing with any mix of these ensembles, Prevost conducts workshops, provides lectures, and writes about improv for many journals. He also works his record label, Matchless Information.
