For 15 years Thomas Helton has laid down basslines for jazz ensembles in Houston and around the US. Thomas was inspired by the sounds of John Zorn and Peter Kowald to venture outside mainstream musical bounds. This journey began with the Rosta Jazz Avengers, a Houston-based quartet all about free improvisation and sonic exploration.
