John Russell (born 1954 in London) is an acoustic guitarist who has worked exclusively in the field of free improvisation since the 1970s. He has been active consistently during that time as a promoter of concerts of freely improvised music in London, providing hundreds of playing opportunities for both local and international musicians. Russell has appeared on more than 50 published recordings.
Russell and Solberg have toured as a duo and in quartet settings with Englishmen John Edwardsand Steve Bereford. Solberg, like Norway's other drumming export Paal Nilssen-Love subdues his punk rock inclinations for a more inward-looking, thoughtful sound here. With excellent sound, the recording of the pair intersects throughout with no conspicuous soloing to be found. Russell applies micro-bursts of itchy scratchy sound that pours forth with percussive touches and cascading notes. Unique to his approach to free music is that his sound is never masked as something else. That makes for a excellent free improvisation. Mark Corroto ~ allaboutjazz.
