Finally, parts of a reunion gig with Marcio Mattos and Mark Sanders have been documented on YouTube. 'Chris Biscoe at Flim Flam September 2019' will bring up the filmed extracts, though my favourite is by my unpronounceable doppelganger Chris Biscscoe. Excellent as this name is it pales beside the wonderful B Bifbo.
New collaboration by Way Out West members Chris Biscoe and Kate Williams brings together two outstanding improvisers in a quartet featuring original compositions by Chris and Kate, plus great standards and a few choice selections from the Bill Evans songbook. Rising star Flo Moore and ever inventive drummer Tristan Mailliot complete an exciting line-up. First gig at the Cadogan Hall during the EDF London Jazz Festival had an enthusiastic and responsive audience.
Mo Foster and Friends, featuring guitarist Ray Russell creates small band interpretations of some of the big band arrangements and compositions of Gil Evans, Mike Gibbs and Jaco Pastorius as well as originals by Mo and Ray. The band continues to play live, but the main focus at present is on completing a debut CD.
In December 2018 at Area Sismica, Forli, bassist John Pope and Chris Biscoe played for the first time as a duo. You can hear most of our set on this download which can be purchased from Bandcamp.
