Main Street Music

John Edwards - Just Another Day At Home / 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 it's 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, John Butcher and many others. Edwards studied art and knew from very early on that his future wouldn't be a desk job. From inheritance money he bought his first double bass at the age of 22. From that moment on, he learns, exercises his passion and begins to gain a reputation in the London community. He has a completely intuitive approach and only learns to read notes at a much later time. Maybe this is the secret to his unique technique, a result of years of hard work and a very creative imagination. In 1987 Edwards founded The Pointy Birds, his early music is a mix of avantgarde and an anarchic punk spirit. Soon he becomes a key player in the improvisers' scene of which he is now one of the most important representatives. Just Another Day At Home was recorded during a covid lockdown in 2020 and originally released as a digital download only. This CD edition is the first physical version of this music, remastered in 2023
