Excerpt From Eddie Prévost’s New Book is Available

Percussionist and free improvisation pioneer Eddie Prévost returns with a fourth volume of memoir, anecdotes and cultural analysis. Reviewing An Uncommon Music For The Common Man in The Wire 440, Abi Bliss writes: “Any of Prévost’s previous volumes could lay partial claim to its subtitle, A Polemical Memoir, but here formative experience and creative philosophy are deliberately paired… or, as he acknowledges at the outset: “Unintended consequences are where, in my opinion, the most fruitful material can arise.”” In this excerpt, Prévost describes an early encounter between AMM, Cornelius Cardew and the BBC.
