CD2 features: The Eddie Prevost Trio (with Tom Chant and John Edwards), Yann Charaoui, John Lely and Seymour Wright, John Tilbury and Evan Parker." "The Evening: The little official, institutional or media recognition (to examine the equivalence which is taken for granted between these three adjectives reveals plenty of horrors) which is (not) enjoyed by free improvisation sends its defenders into habitual errings of groupuscular logic. There's nothing new under the sun, in the arena of polemics concerning the presumed parallels (or lack thereof) with (free) jazz, everyone is right and wrong at the same time, because there is no one improvised music or one (free) jazz, and from the start one can say everything about nothing or vice versa -- it is rare to hear Eddie Prévost's remark to Derek Bailey cited: 'They criticised us by saying 'that's not jazz' -- in an important sense, these remarks were completely erroneous.' The founder of AMM is not dogmatic. We cannot now explore in depth the implications of this spiny 'in an important sense', but Eddie Prévost's music will illustrate it this evening some ten years down the road." --Philippe Alen
