Eddie Prevost


Drummer Eddie Prevost was born on June 22, 1942 in England. As a teenager he played drums in Skiffle and trad jazz bands before showing signs of the creative musician that was forming. After his initial exposure to his greatest influences Max Roach and Ed Blackwell, Prevost became fascinated with the endless possibilities of improvisation.

He also began recording with free jazz musicians Evan Parker, Marilyn Crispell, and Paul Rutherford
