Peter Slavid likes adventurous modern jazz that draws inspiration from a variety of sources.
He started listening over 50 years ago with Ornette Coleman and
Albert Ayler and then discovered UK jazz with Mike Westbrook, Brotherhood of
Breath and Loose Tubes.
In 2004 Peter started working with London's F-IRE collective, a
movement that changed the face of British modern jazz, and that nurtured some
of the finest young talent around.
Peter enjoys finding new musicians from all across Europe – often
bands never heard in the UK. He plays some of the unsung European masters
- and he enjoys introducing listeners to young adventurous musicians
experimenting and developing their style"
