...........it is Edwards that continually pushes everyone beyond the comfort zone. He is capable of an endless variety of timbres, from bell-like overtones to crunchy distortion. Derek Bailey's fluidity might be a point of comparison, but there can be more "out" rock in Edward's styling, ala Mark Ribot or Sonny Sharrock..... -Marc Medwin
Also with Mark Sanders he has performed in Gadansk, Poland in the project 'Lunae Descritio' with Mikolaj Trzaska and has his own trio with bass player Colin Somervell releasing the CD 'Nang Naak'
..............Wow, this piece is f**king amazing! I just hope a few of those fusion fans show up at the store soon so I can blow their minds with this treat!
A most impressive jazz/rock power trio with five long pieces to push things out to the edges.....

He has also has experience living and working in Spain, touring with 'Animales Domesticos' and notably meeting and performing with Jim Black.
