Kuchen, Martin / Johan Berthling / Steve Noble: Night In Europe (NoBusiness)

Label: NoBusiness    
Released in: Lithuania    


Swedish saxophonist Martin Kuchen (Angles, Trespass Trio, All Included) with UK drummer/percussionist Steve Noble and double bassist John Berthling in a searing album of free improvisation performed live at Glenn Miller Cafe in Stockholm in 2014. The trio is on fire as they go into each track, taking a step back for solos from Noble and Berthling, adding dynamic and dimension to their informed interactive playing. Dynamic and demanding, this is a great example of the state of contemporary improvisation from three well-versed and in-demand players. Recommended.

"Steve Noble is London's leading drummer, a fearless and constantly inventive improviser whose super-precise, ultra-propulsive and hyper-detailed playing has galvanized encounters with Derek Bailey, Matthew Shipp, Ishmael Wadada Leo Smith, Stephen O'Malley, Joe McPhee, Alex Ward, Rhodri Davies and many, many more.

In the early eighties, Noble played with the Nigerian master drummer Elkan Ogunde, Rip Rig and Panic, Brion Gysin and the Bow Gamelan Ensemble, before going on to work with the pianist Alex Maguire and with Derek Bailey (including Company Weeks 1987, 89 and 90). He was featured in the Bailey's excellent TV series on Improvisation for Channel 4 based on his book 'Improvisation; its nature and practise'. He has toured and performed throughout Europe, Africa and America and currently leads the groups N.E.W (with John Edwards and Alex Ward) and DECOY (with John Edwards and Alexander Hawkins)."
