John Russell

A leading figure on the British free improvisation scene guitarist Russell’s involvement dates back to the early 1970’s. Since then he has worked with many of the world’s leading musicians in the field and can be heard on over 50 CDs as soloist, band leader and collaborator.As opportunities permit, he has extended this approach to collaborate with practitioners from other spheres, i.e. poetry, composition, theatre and performance art and has broadcast on television and radio in the UK and abroad.

In 1981, he founded QUAQUA, a large bank of improvisers put together in different combinations for specific projects and, in 1991, he started MOPOMOSO which has become the UK’s longest running concert series featuring mainly improvised music.
