This is the correct time, not as in the brochure!
Mick Beck – tenor sax, bassoon, and whistles, Anton Hunter – guitar, Johnny Hunter – drums trio
‘It’s been a while since Beck put out one of his trio releases, but the group’s Discus release “The Hunt Is On” emphatically shows why threesomes are his favourite means of creating dynamic music and performance. A first release from a refreshing mix of generations and styles partnering Beck’s experience and power with the younger talented Hunter brothers. They easily span free music and free jazz, even making incursions into the wild west and middle European fantasies. The group was formed about 2 years ago and immediately caught the attention of critics and audiences: “…truly mind-blowing, ranging between a cardiac arrest, epileptic fit and a nervous breakdown. The trio are extremely tight, threatening to unravel before skilfully coming back into sync. There is some jaw-dropping guitar work and Mick is a maestro on the saxophone, the music oscillating between anger and desolation.” – Rob Aldam, Now Then Magazine Oct 2013”.
Adrian Northover (sax) / Daniel Thompson (guitar) duo
A duo combining both close listening and an intense dialogue. Northover and Thompson are like two weavers working on a single musical carpet. While instrumental expectations are challenged by a constant ‘push and pull’ between the pair they never lose the thread that binds them as patterns emerge and submerge in an ever changing music. This performance celebrates the launch of their new CD ‘Mill Hill’ released on RawTonk records.
Gianni Mimmo / Harri Sjoestroem (soprano saxes) duo
We are very pleased to welcome back these two European masters of the soprano sax on a return visit to Mopomoso after a two year gap. In that time they have continued to tour and delight audiences with their melodic invention and split second interplay. A remakable dialogue developing from a shared and deep love of the instrument that draws the ear into a timeless, stylistically broad and engaging musical adventure.
