"I am a musician author and educator , I play Trumpet through guitar effect pedals,
I was classically trained age 8-15 but didn’t get anywhere as I have always been into Avante Garde minded, but in January 2016 I saw a band called spaceheads.
I also joined Tony Douglas MBE’s beginners big band and learnt how to use my ears." – Robyn Steward
John Edwards is a true virtuoso whose staggering range of techniques and boundless musical imagination have redefined the possibility of the double bass and dramatically expanded its role, whether playing solo or with others. Perpetually in demand, he has played with Evan Parker, Sunny Murray, Derek Bailey, Joe McPhee, Lol Coxhill, Peter Brötzmann, Mulatu Astatke and many others.
"I think John Edwards is absolutely remarkable: there’s never been anything like him before, anywhere in jazz." - Richard Williams, The Blue Moment
