Cactus Truck with Jeb Bishop and Roy Campbell: Live in USA (Eh? / Tractata Records)
Label: Eh? / Tractata Records    
Released in: USA    

This limited CD documents the first tour of the Amsterdam based free improvising trio, Cactus Truck, during their 40 stop 2012 US tour. The first two extended tracks are recorded by myself at their show here at Squidco with trombonist Jeb Bishop making the band a quartet. Four shorter tracks from their performance as a trio at Astro Black Records follow, and then the final show of the tour closes the CD, performing in NYC at JACK with trumpeter Roy Campbell for the extended song "Ninja". That three younger players fit so well with two establish and vital players is a testament to the skill this trio brings to the table, a new power trio of incredible strength and inventive creativity. We're proud to have their concert here included on this release, the second but surely not the last from this great modern free jazz band!
