“Billie Davies is an accomplished free-jazz drummer. Born in Belgium, she now lives in New Orleans, having spent
much of her life living peripatetically. The press release and liner notes of this CD are full of stories and these
provide both an introduction and, I think, an explanation of her playing. Previous reviewers have made much of
the self-taught nature of her drumming. While this is a feature of one of the stories in the press release, I defy
any listener to distinguish her playing from someone ‘schooled’ in jazz drumming. There is a vitality and fluidity
in the way that she plays the drum kit and this is what I mean by the idea that her stories explain her drumming;
she speaks through the drums to the other players, asking questions of them and replying with the fusion of
styles that she has built up over her travels” —Chris Baber, Jazz Views (Jun 30, 2016)
By 1977 Billie was working in the Private Night Club sector as a DJ in Cologne, Germany
Evoluxion Project attempts to answer inquiries concerning the nature and values in Cuban musical practices combining technology, sound design, and the driving force behind the passion for the music we make and the audience we make it for. For the last years, Alberto has been tackling these issues in its characteristically piecemeal approach and has revived an interest in questions about the ontological nature of Cuban musical works, the experience of its own identity’s musical expressiveness and its artistic value. Afro Cuban Electronic Jazz is coming from a wide range of cultural and professional backgrounds

Eddie Neumann was born in communist Romania at a time when jazz was almost banned. He first came into contact with jazz when Dave Brubeck came to Moscow in 1987. 11 years later, he recorded the first live jazz CD ever to be published in Romania (Changes, 1998) along with the Jazz Unit band. The resulting sexted received the Jazz Album of the Year award from the Romanian Union of Composers in 2000 for their album From Now On. Eddie is the mastermind behind the revered Romanian nu-jazz band Blazzaj, for which he wrote music and lyrics. After a short stint in West London, where he played jazz, klezmer and world music with several bands and produced his own electronic music called Electric Vulcans, he relocated to Romania, where he continues touring and recording with various ensembles crossing the jazz and ethnic music realms.

At Kollega HQ we are inspired and motivated by fusing technology and contemporary sounds into our music alongside acoustic and electric instruments. The tunes are underpinned by big grooves and processed bass sitting beneath insistent tenor saxophone and lush analogue synths with loops and samples providing lots of sweet additional sonic interest. We believe that the studio and live outputs of the band should reflect each other while providing different and complementary experiences
