Italian saxophone firebrand Daniele Martini joins forces with two top notch British improvisers to create this trio exploring wide-ranging improvisation, rich textural invention and dynamics.
DANIELE MARTINI / saxophones
Born in Rome and based in Brussels, Daniele Martini is an eclectic and original saxophone player.
With a wide musical range that is reflected by the extremely diverse bands where he plays, he's often involved in projects of free improvisation, such as Tetterapadequ and Roll Call, both of which recorded on Clean Feed, and a lasting collaboration with Nate Wooley. It’s of recent release "Posh Scorch" a vinyl with Wooley, Chris Corsano, Hugo Antunes and Giovanni di Domenico, by German Orre Records.
DOMINIC LASH / double bass
Dominic Lash has performed with Tony Conrad and Evan Parker; other currently active ensembles include a duo with Alex Ward, a trio with John Butcher and John Russell and The Convergence Quartet (with Taylor Ho Bynum, Harris Eisenstadt and Alexander Hawkins). He also leads The Set Ensemble (an experimental music group mainly devoted to the work of composers from the Wandelweiser collective). Recent CD publications include work on the Another Timbre, Cathnor, Clean Feed and Psi labels. He was resident in New York for much of 2011, where he performed with musicians including Michael Pisaro, Fay Victor and Nate Wooley.
MARK SANDERS / drums
Mark Sanders has been acclaimed as "the most exciting, original and overwhelmingly powerful drummer alive" (Steve Reynolds, Jazz Corner) and his precise and propulsive drumming has graced projects with, to name but a few, Evan Parker, Jah Wobble, Broadcast, Agusti Fernandez, John Butcher, Roswell Rudd, and Otomo Yoshihde.
"ubiquitous, diverse and constantly creative, drummer Mark Sanders always outdoes himself, whether playing with restraint or erupting like a dynamo." Bruce L Gallenter, Downtown Music Gallery. NY
"a gifted player capable of seamless movement between free-rhythms and propulsive swing" John Fordham. The Guardian
