Endlessly fascinating, hypnotic improvisations on piano, double bass and percussion by The Necks, the Australian trio that achieved a world wide cult status.

The Australian trio The Necks plays slowly unfolding, hypnotic improvisations that touch on all kinds of music, from Western minimalism to African trance and from to ambient to contemporary electronic music. Every other set of The Necks is another slowly unfolding improvisation based on the interaction between piano, bass and percussion.

In the late 1980s the three jazz musicians of The Necks sought an alternative to the busy chord progressions and solos of their contemporaries. The rhythm section on the album In a Silent Way by Miles Davis was an important source of inspiration.

Chris Abrahams piano, Lloyd Swanton bass, Tony Buck drums Recording: Micha de Kanter
