Equal Time is a creative improvisational group that draws heavily on the traditions of jazz and blues while always looking to the future of improvised music. In this live recording from May 2007, Thom Keith (saxophone), Derek Kwong (trombone), Mike Walsh (drums), and Tim Webb (bass), engage the audience in a true celebration of music...a discovery process that is exhilarating. The music on Regeneration X runs the gamut from freewheeling collective improvisation to funky grooves. And all of it was composed on the spot with the exception of Thom Keith's composition "Yrrehs Mas."
Tim, Thom, and Mike, as a trio, worked with trombonist Dick Griffin (Now Is The Time, A Dream for Rahsaan) and trumpeter Eddie Gale (Ghetto Music, Black Rhythm Happening), and band members have worked with Charlie Kohlhase, Matt Langley, Curtis Clark, Analog Method, Sam Rivers, and the Bjorkestra.
Equal Time is regularly featured in shows sponsored by Avant Coast, a creative musicians organization based in southern Maine/seacoast New Hampshire that owes a great debt to the AACM for inspiration in its infancy. Give a look-see at www.avantcoast.com.
