Blume / de Joode / Butcher
Martin Blume and John Butcher have a connection that goes back to 1991 with the group Frisque Concordance.
This trio with Wlbert de Joode has been active for around 15 years, with concerts including the Ruhr Jazz Festival, and DOM, Moscow.
A certain nuanced lyricism (especially in Martin Blume’s way to play the drums) is more important than energetic iconoclasm. The trio’s music is full of melodic, tonal and harmonic miniatures, contingent ideas that the trio merges into a fascinating mosaic of fragments.
