Paul Rutherford

Born Greenwich, London, 29 February 1940, trombone, euphonium, piano.

A stalwart of the early UK free scene who has played in, and contributed positively to, just about every available possibility, in more structured musics as well as obvious free situations: Globe Unity Orchestra, London Jazz Composer's Orchestra, Mike Westbrook Orchestra,and what appears to be a myriad of small groups, e.g.: Iskra 1903, duo with Paul Lovens, Quintet Moderne, and, recently, in trio with Anthony Braxton and Evan Parker. Perhaps most famous for solo trombone improvisations, and while many would dispute the fact that The Gentle harm of the bourgeoisie is the best solo trombone recording, it can't be far from the truth. Great title too.
