Monicker is an international, intergenerational, improvising trio. Drummer Roger Turner (London, UK) is a legend in the field of creative improvised music, having played far and wide since the early 1970s with incredible collaborators including, notably, Cecil Taylor, Derek Bailey, Evan Parker, Annette Peacock, and Min Tanaka. He first played with guitarist Arthur Bull (Digby Neck, NS) in 2002 at a workshop at the Guelph Jazz Festival, and the two have reconvened to play duo concerts periodically ever since. In 2017, they invited trombonist Scott Thomson (Montréal), a key figure from a younger generation of Canadian creative musicians, to form a trio during a Halifax residency.
