Nik Turner & Flame Tree

Nik Turner (sax, vox)
Nazar Ali Khan (bass, electronics)
Jack Gold-Molina (drums, percussion)

The album Flame Tree featuring Nik Turner has been described as experimental jazz fusion. Recorded in the US, the album draws on the tradition of free form improvisation familiar to Europe. Last year, saxophonist Nik Turner performed with Seattle based Jack Gold-Molina (drums) and Dennis Rea (guitar), who both feature on the album, and Inner City Unit bassist Nazar Ali Khan, at the annual Sonic Rock Solstice festival as Nik Turner & Flame Tree.

Nik Turner was a founder member of Hawkwind, playing with the band during their heyday and bringing a free jazz sensibility to the band’s driving space rock sound. He performs regularly with Brand New Space Ritual and Inner City Unit, and was featured in the Quietus’ Bakers Dozen feature last year. His recent Space Fusion Odyssey album features a host of guest players from the jazz fusion scene.
