Improvisations on the music of Arthur Blythe, Ornette Coleman, Fats Waller, Monk and new compositions.
Way Out West members Chris Biscoe and Gary Willcox invite Chris Batchelor and Steve Watts to join them in improvisations on the music of Arthur Blythe, Ornette Coleman, Fats Waller, Monk and some new original tunes.
Rooted in exploration of parts of the jazz tradition which are too little heard, the four improvisers bring fresh ears and minds to this great 20th century music, as well showcasing their own contemporary compositions.
