“Trevor has been on the scene since the early 60's and has been at the forefront of Jazz & Improv music in all this time. As a founder member of the Spontaneous Music Ensemble in 1965, Amalgam in 1967, London Jazz Composers Orchestra around 1973, Splinters with Phil Seaman, Tubby Hayes, Stan Tracey. Jeff Clyne and John Stevens and so on. Since those days he has played many festivals with his Moire Music groups, which also included the Moire Music Drum Orchestra. Some of these for instance were the San Francisco Jazz Fest/Vancouver Jazz Fest/Seattle Jazz Fest/Berlin Jazz Fest/London Jazz Fest/Singapore Arts Fest/Washington DC World Music Fest/Glastonbury Fest/Womad Fest and so on........................

Watts has also performed with, and amongst many others Archie Shepp/Steve Lacy/Denardo Coleman with Jayne Cortez/Steve Swallow/Irene Schweizer/Don Cherry/Bobby Bradford/Dave Holland/Rashied Ali/Peter Kowald/Adama Drame (Burkina Faso)/Cyro Baptista and so on. He was instrumental in initiating the collaboration between his Drum Orchestra and Teatro Negro Barlovento (Venezuela) 35 piece group which played the Saalfelden and Crawley Jazz Festivals as well as concerts in S America and a BBC radio broadcast. Trevor has had a long standing improvising duo with pianist Veryan Weston and another very different duo with Percussionist Jamie Harris, based on rhythmic & melodic ideas in the main. They were wildly appreciated at the Sao Paolo Jazz Festival in Brasil some years ago and also in the Dominican Republic.

This sample of Watts' newest venture called ETERNAL TRIANGLE which features Jamie Harris (Percussion)/Veryan Weston (Nord Kybd) and Trevor Watts (alto & sop saxes, compositions) and is made up from those two duos, you can hear at the above link. All the compositions are different, and we have never failed to gain an audience's excited interest whenever we play a concert.”
