Join us in Bill’s Kitchen for a fabulous Pop-Up Jazz Event!
Ed Gauden is a drummer who studied at the Birmingham Conservatoire and has recorded with the likes of Mark Hanslip, Barry Edwards, Colin Somervelle, Steve Tromans and Paul Dunmall. He has toured the UK extensively with folk musician Jake Flowers. His current interests lie in free improvisation and co runs a trio with Trevor Lines and Bruce Coates.
Steve Tromans has been a professional musician (pianist and composer) since the 1990s. As a composer he has written 200+ works for his own and others’ ensembles, including John Mayer’s Indo-Jazz Fusions (with whom he toured India, Bangladesh, and recorded 3 albums) and Sid Peacock’s Surge Orchestra and has been commissioned by Birmingham Symphony Hall, Jazzlines, and Birmingham Jazz. As a performer Tromans has given over 6,000 performances in music and cross-arts projects, at venues ranging from international festivals (including Glastonbury, the Cheltenham and Derry Jazz Festivals, and the Aldeburgh Poetry Festival) to smaller venues around the UK and abroad.
Trevor Lines is currently marking 50 years of involvement in improvised/experimental music, jazz and traditional folk music, during which time he has worked with leading UK and international figures in all these fields. He is currently Visiting Lecturer in improvisation and folk music at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. The Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD says this about him: ‘Lines is far too seasoned and experienced a musician ever to simply go for the obvious’
