Trevor Watts and Veryan Weston have been active in the European improvised music scene for more than 40 years. The former is the only living member of the legendary Spontaneus Music Ensemble, whose impact on the status and importance of the European improvised music world can hardly be overestimated. The latter has been, among others, the musical partner of one of the greatest improvising singers, Phil Minton. What brought these two together has been, from the start, an extremely wide spectrum of inspirations, from contemporary music to jazz to African rhythms. All these elements, albeit in varying proportions and intensity, have contributed to their musical language. Watts and Weston appear to be ideal partners, since they have the extremely rare gift of nearly intuitively understanding and collaborating with each other. Their concerts usually turn into dazzling journeys through music, in which stylistic boundaries cease to exist.
