A View From The edge


Released: 7th March 2005 | 11 track acid jazz album
Kwerk is an independent London based label specialising in combining the sounds of contemporary jazz with 21st century beats. Kwerk is dedicated to continue exploring and celebrating the marriage of jazz and beats. There are so many ways of fusing the myriad strains of jazz with contemporary beats, a journey like this could go on for ever. The first album release on Kwerk is a collaborative venture between Geoff Wilkinson (US3) and saxophonist Ed Jones called ed/ge. 'A View From The ed/ge' is a melting pot of swinging big band horn arrangements underpinned by a range of futuristic rhythms from crunching hip-hop, through broken beats in different time signatures, to drum & bass.'
"?Horns with attitude and crisp drum rhythms. What more could you ask for?"
Independent on Sunday
"?ed/ge gets as close as I?ve ever heard to combining great jazz with current drum programming and loops. If you feel a bit daring, pick up this disc and enjoy a truly pioneering effort by some of the best in the genre?"
"?plenty of ingenious references to jazz sounds reborn through hip-hop and drum?n?bass? the band is sharp and Jones is an inspired soloist?"
Q Magazine
"?The results are genius and fresh? ed/ge produces a wonderful new sound and successfully accomplishes big band meets beats? (USA)"
