Chris Speed Trio
to Mar 2

Chris Speed Trio

Since arriving in New York in the early 1990s, reed player Chris Speed has been one of the most vital improvising  musicians on the scene. His work has always ranged widely, moving from a jazz base out through various forms of folk, classical and rock music. With the formation of this excellent trio with drummer Dave King (The Bad Plus) and bassist Chris Tordini he's sort of reversed direction. The is a group returning from other explorations to work deep within the jazz tradition, bringing everything else they've learned back in. What is most compelling about this music is the incorporation of early jazz styles in a way that is direct and deeply felt. The music is joyful and generous and Speed has an uncanny knack for coming up with tunes that can create a whole world of emotions and formal possibilities behind an often catchy melodic surface. The trio released their latest album, 'Platinum on Tap', on August 18, 2017 on Intakt Records.

Chris Speed – Dave King – Chris Tordini (USA) is met recht een supertrio. Hierin bewijst Speed zich als een saxofonist die alle stijlen aankan, van klezmer tot avantgarde jazz. Slagwerker Dave King bouwt met zijn succesvolle trio The Bad Plus pop- en rocksongs om tot swingende jazzstukken. In dit trio laat hij een andere kant van zijn talent zien. Bassist Chris Tordini was onlangs nog in Paradox met Becca Stevens en eerder met John Hollenbeck’s THE CLAUDIA QUINTET. Zij starten hun Europese tournee in Paradox. Tevens verzorgen zij voorafgaande aan het concert een workshop voor studenten van het Tilburgse Conservatorium.
