ZAUM is music instantly conceived and played by great
improvisers from wildly contrasting musical backgrounds.
Initially put together by Steve in the autumn of 2002 to record a
first album for SLAM, the group, which was always intended to
involve a shifting number of personnel working together in a
variety of musical settings, has continued to flourish and
"The last thing I wanted it to sound like was the perceived notion of jazz or anything else for that matter" says Steve
"Each performance, be it a duo or the full or expanded group, starts with a clean sheet. It's a bit of a cliche, but it really is like a journey that we want to take with each other and the audience. And we're all driving the bus!"
2006 Penguin guide to jazz
The Penguin Guide to Jazz describes ZAUM as "the most exciting group in Europe today' and gives 'Above Our Heads...' the highest rating, calling it 'a masterpiece'
