A View From The edge

A 11 track acid jazz album (1h 15s) — released March 7th 2005 on Kwerk
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.'
