Biography of Greg Morgan

‘A world somewhere between Atlantis and Greenwich Village’1

This music draws on an ancient tradition: it owes as much to Aeschylus as it does to late-John Coltrane and Albert Ayler. The expressionism of the music - fragmented rhythms, atonality, deeply-felt melodic beauty - is there to intensify the unity of the drama. The pieces are like disconnected scenes: dialogue, recitative, chorus, aria. And the story is perhaps Mazeppa.

‘This is music played by people who want to be somewhere else and are doing something about it.’2

The voices in this unknown landscape are:

Greg Morgan - saxophones, composer
Background in classical and jazz. First release Spirit of Light (Slam ’96) attracted good reviews across Europe. Most recent release Nisir (Pella ’04) followed by touring in duo with Chas Ambler.

Dan Haywood - guitar
Formerly of alt-rockers The Puma-Sutras and now producing thirty-song album Dan Haywood’s New Hawks.

Pete French - organ
Artist, musician and gardener. Ex James Hunter; in duo Mood Index with novelist-singer Ian Marchant.

Chas Ambler - percussion, drums
Actor, drummer, singer-songwriter. Played with The Trees, Jamie Muir & Don Weller, 7:84, John B Spencer.

Jeff Barnes - drums
Composer of electronic music, string quartets; multi-instrumentalist, and inventor of The Wheel.
