where do you want to go ?
let the konks take you......
alexander frangenheim --- double bass
michel doneda --- soprano saxophone
rt --drumset, percussion
the trio was formed somewhere in the midst of the covid years, and has played two tours of germany, austria, switzerland, and france, from which a cd ---live in ulrichsberg --- was released. whilst being acutely aware of nuance, it's a band that manages to subvert easy comfort.
tdALEXANDER FRANGENHEIM ----

we played our first concert in the cafe oto, london, at the end of 2022, from which a cd will be released. the band will be playing a short tour in october 2023, starting here in london and then over to mainland europe. it's a trio negotiating the acoustic--electric minefield with a certain lack of restraint..........
THE CROAKS ---- martin kuchen, martin klapper, rt
we played in april 2018 in norway, sweden, and after covid in poland. a cd ---"one of the best bears" ---was released featuring mr klapper's great sensitised wall of sound and mr kuchen's vibrant crow-squawk. a special band indeed.
DUO with Phil Minton ---- always up for something special, the duo has lived for 40 years or so, having performed across the u.s.a. and canada a few times, and throughout europe often. a sensitised dynamic of auditory mischief, at once a celebration and a fight.
plus the minton quartet----phil minton, veryan weston, john butcher, rt
THE SEA TRIO
masahiko satoh ---piano
otomo yoshihide--- electric guitar
rt----- drumset, percussion
this trio has worked in tokyo since 2015. we released a cd "live at hall egg farm" for doubt records, recorded at the legendary saito san's concert hall. masahiko satoh played and recorded with nearly all the eminent new york jazz musicians of the late 70's and 80's. otomo plays guitar in this trio, and it can all fire with a real sense of musical danger. the band played a short tour of europe in april-may 2023. a double cd may come from this, which would in fact be the third release of the trio.
