FRED FRITH TRIO - Closer to the Ground 70th birthday tour (with special guests if requested)

October / November 2019

With their second album the Fred Frith Trio with Jason Hoopes (Bass) and Jordan Glenn (Drums) continues toexplore the dimension of the guitar trio. „Closer to the Ground“ is all about sound, mood, texture, ideas, andatmosphere. Playful, intimate, and bound together, the Fred Frith Trio reminds us of what listening is all about. With a lifetime of experience across almost every field of musical endeavor, Frith stretches out in the company oftwo stalwarts of the vibrant Bay Area music scene whoeach have their own stories to tell. As this is also Frith’s touring band, many of these themes were already roadtested so even at their most in-the-moment creative, this trio remains dense and tight. „Three extravagantly creative musicians employed inmaking music like we’ve never heard before,“ writes Canadian critic Raul da Gama.

Fred Frith, der Improvisateur, Komponist und Multi-Instrumentalist, der lachende Aussenseiter zwischenRock und Jazz, Improvisation und Komposition, führtsein Gitarrentrio aus der Bay Aera mit einer zweiten CD-Veröffentlichung weiter: «Closer to the Ground». Frühe Erfahrungen aus der Rock and Roll Zeit werden verarbeitet und mit Fred Frith’s eigenwilliger Spielweise undseinem höchst persönlichen Sound weitergeführt. „Drei aussergewöhnlich kreative Musiker spielen eine Musik,wie wir sie zuvor noch nie gehört haben“, schreibt der kanadische Jazzkritiker Raul da Gama über das Trio.
