Ben Davis [cello]
Emma Smith and Vicky Fifield [violins]
Jennymay Logan [viola]
Richard Pryce [bass]
+ Seb Rochford [drums]
The group was formed four years ago by composer/arranger cellist Ben Davis.
They have played as a string section on the following records:
'UPWARDS' - Ty
'BENEATH THE SURFACE'- Juliet Roberts
'ATLAS'- Monica Vasconcelos, Nois 4
'OMINOUS'- Border Crossing
Most of the string arrangements are by Ben Davis. All the members have been classically trained but have also submerged themselves in the jazz tradition.
Throughout their existence Basquiat Strings have been developing their own programme, using compositions of Ben Davis and well known jazz player/composers, through rehearsal, "jamming", and performance.
