Shot in and around Bermondsey, Rotherhithe and Deptford, April/May 2013.
Eddie Prévost, percussionist and improviser, is a key figure in the British experimental music tradition which continues to thrive today. For 50 years he has been exploring the spontaneous musical process found at the heart of Jazz.
This film presents an opportunity to observe Eddie Prévost playing in solo and group situations, and to hear him speak about his approach to music-making, the particular tools of his craft, and the bloodline that stretches from his Huguenot ancestors through to his own working class origins in South East London. Incorporating footage of performances by Prévost with Jennifer Allum, John Butcher, Ute Kanngiesser and Ricardo Tejero in unique locations, including a return to his old school in Deptford, we are invited to form our own response to the music - and the man - we encounter.
