Derek Saw | Back
Trumpet, Tuba & Valve Trombone

Like many members of the Sheffield free music scene, Derek Saw has a chequered instrumental history. In the 1980s he played raunchy saxophone with cult band BassToneTrap, who delivered a heady brew of rock, r 'n' b, and free improv. But the '90s saw him gradually migrate to the brass family, and these days he's most frequently heard on tuba, alongside theremin player Beatrix Ward-Fernandez, or on trumpet and valve trombone in various collaborations with fellow-Sheffield improvisers Charlie Collins and John Jasnoch.
