Upcoming Hurricane

Niggenkemper, Pascal / Simon Nabatov / Gerald Cleaver: Upcoming Hurricane (NoBusiness)
Label: NoBusiness    
Released in: Lithuania    


"Upcoming Hurricane is a new group in a traditional form, a particular concatenation of musicians that gelled with remarkable speed and which brings its own strong personality to the idea of the piano trio. It has a layered rhythmic dynamism that comes directly from the tradition and the exploding, unfettered energy of free improvisation. It was the young bassist Pascal Niggenkemper's idea to put together this band with the brilliant veterans Simon Nabatov and Gerald Cleaver, and it's a sign of both Niggenkemper's skills and his prescience that the group possesses the depth, vitality and vision that it does."-Stuart Broomer
