Wednesday 2/11/16 Hans Peter Hiby Trio

***** Jazz Special *****

Hans Peter Hiby first encountered British drummer Paul Hession in the Winter of 1986 when they started playing together as a duo in Hiby's home-town of Wuppertal. Having grown up and spending much of his childhood with Caspar Brötzmann, Hiby has deep roots within the Wuppertaler free jazz community. At which point we feel duty bound to declare:!!!WARNING!!! this gig carriers a Placktone Club Health Warning Performance liable to produce catharsis and other simliar challenges

Hiby/Hession has played throughout Germany as well as surrounding countries and on occasions augmented the duo with bass players Marcio Mattos, Roberto Bellatalla and Peter Kowald. The duo has now evolved into the new trio with double bass player Michael Bardon from Leeds who has played with Nat Birchall and Shatner's Bassoon.

***** Jazz Special *****

Most pleased to welcome Stephen Grew (piano) and Trevor Watts (alto & soprano sax) to play for the first time at the Queens. Trevor is a legend of improvised music over the past fifty years, and Stephen is aptly described as “One of Europe’s most dedicated and imaginative pianists” (mjf)

Since the 1960s Trevor Watts has been at the forefront of many innovations as a saxophone player, percussionist and composer, he was a founder member of The Spontaneous Music Ensemble and the London Jazz Composers Orchestra and leader of the bands Amalgam, Moire Music and The Drum Orchestra. He's also worked with many of the great US jazz musicians, including Don Cherry, Archie Shepp, Steve Lacy, Kent Carter, Rashied Ali, Steve Swallow and Bobby Bradford as well as Europe's foremost musicians including Dave Holland, Kenny Wheeler, Stan Tracey, Evan Parker, Louis Moholo, Lol Coxhill, Barry Guy, Paul Rutherford, Tony Oxley, John Stevens, Derek Bailey and many more.

STEPHEN GREW has been playing piano and electronic keyboards for 25 years. His music is completely improvised. He creates spontaneous compositions with other musicians in the heat of the moment. He also performs as a soloist and has toured extensively, touring and recording with many musicians from the free improvised scene including Evan Parker, Keith Tippett, Tony Bianco, Graham Clark, Pat Thomas, Howard Riley and many others.
