Martin Kuchen

Martin Küchen was born 1966 in Eskilstuna, Sweden. He wanted to take lessons on drums, but his parents made him "choose" the flute instead, which became his main instrument from the age of nine until he stopped when he was twenty. When he was thirteen he started to sing in a rock band. That group ended after some years, but he never have stopped singing. From 1985 to 1987 he attended the Music school of Skurup, Sweden. It was a very jazzorientated education, but when he persuaded a bass and drums and piano to join him playing a standard on his tenor saxophone (which he started playing when he was fifteen), but in an Ayleruesqe way, they laughed him to pieces

Angles 9: Beyond Us

Read "Beyond Us" reviewed by John Sharpe

Swedish saxophonist Martin Küchen's versatile Angles agglomeration has appeared in assorted sizes from a trio up to a nonet.

Angles 9: Beyond Us

Read "Beyond Us" reviewed by John Bricker

Ed Pettersen - Martin Küchen - Roger Turner: The End of the Universe

Read "The End of the Universe" reviewed by Glenn Astarita

It may be a matter of semantics, but does the album title imply the physical end to the universe where all matter is extinguished, or is the trio at the edge of the universe and framing their collective improvisational skills on that notion? Either way, the music iterated here musters a cosmic reference point for these ...
