"Drummer and multi-instrumentalist Han Bennink was born in Zaandam near Amsterdam in 1942. His first percussion instrument was a kitchen chair. Later his father, an orchestra percussionist, supplied him with a more conventional outfit, but Han never lost his taste for coaxing sounds from unlikely objects he finds backstage at concerts. He is still very fond of playing chairs.

In Holland in the 1960s, Bennink was quickly recognized as an uncommonly versatile drummer. As a hard swinger in the tradition of his hero Kenny Clarke, he accompanied touring American jazz stars, including Sonny Rollins, Ben Webster, Wes Montgomery, Johnny Griffin, Eric Dolphy and Dexter Gordon. He is heard with Gordon on the 1969 album "Live at Amsterdam Paradiso" (on the Affinity label) and with Dolphy on 1964s "Last Date" (PolyGram). At the same time, Bennink participated in the creation of a European improvised music which began to evolve a new identity, apart from its jazz roots. With fellow Dutch pioneers, pianist Misha Mengelberg and saxophonist Willem Breuker, he founded the musicians collective Instant Composers Pool in 1967. Bennink anchored various bands led by Mengelberg or Breuker, and appeared in their comic music-theater productions.

Bennink attended art school in the 1960s, and is also a successful visual artist in several media, often constructing sculpture from found objects, which may include broken drum heads and sticks. He has designed the covers for many LPs and CDs on which he appears. Bennink is represented by Amsterdam's Galerie Espace, and has been the subject of several one-man shows, including one at the Gemeente Museum in the Hague in 1995.

In 1966, Bennink played the US's Newport Jazz Festival with the Mengelberg quartet. From the late 1960s through the '70s Bennink collaborated frequently with Danish, German, English and Belgian musicians, notably saxophonists John Tchicai and Peter Broetzmann, guitarist Derek Bailey and pianist Fred van Hove. Bennink, Broetzmann and van Hove had a longstanding trio well documented on FMP Records. There Bennink also showcased his talents on clarinet, trombone, soprano saxophone and many other instruments, also featured in a series of solo albums he began in 1971.

Bennink's many recordings from the 1980s include sessions with Mengelberg's ICP Orchestra (where he remains), South African bassist Harry Miller, soprano saxophonist Steve Lacy, trombonists Roswell Rudd and George Lewis, and big-bandleaders Sean Bergin and Andy Sheppard.

From 1988 to'98 Bennink's main vehicle was Clusone 3, with saxophonist and clarinetist Michael Moore and cellist Ernst Reijseger, a band noted for its free-wheeling mix of swinging jazz standards, wide-open improvising, and tender ballads. Clusone played Europe and North America, West Africa, China, Vietnam and Australia, and recorded five CDs for Gramavision, hat Art and Ramboy.

Nowadays he is frequently heard with tenor saxophonist Tobias Delius's quartet and in a trio with pianist/keyboardist Cor Fuhler and bassist Wilbert de Joode, and he still collaborates occasionally with jazz luminaries such as Johnny Griffin, Von Freeman and Ray Anderson.

A conspicuous feature of Bennink's musical life since the 1960s is the spontaneous duo concert with musicians of many nationalities and musical inclinations; in the '90s he recorded in duo with among others pianists Mengelberg, Irene Schweizer and Myra Melford, guitarist Eugene Chadbourne, trumpeter Dave Douglas and tenor saxophonist Ellery Eskelin.

Since 2008 Han Bennink has his own Han Bennink Trio consisting of Han Bennink, Joachim Badenhorst on clarinet and Simon Toldam on piano."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Swiss saxophonist Omri Ziegele presents with the Tomorrow Trio an adventurous line-up featuring the legendary Dutch drummer Han Bennink and accomplished Swiss double bassist Christian Weber. A collaboration that offers a perfect platform for Ziegele's robust, powerful sound and his dynamic phrasing, while at the same time showing interest in poetry and the spoken word."-Intakt

"If the Tomorrow Trio has a defining feature it is the potent­ly communicative dialogue of the three individuals. It can be felt in the tight entwining of certain motifs by sax and drums; the snapchat rhythmic exchange of horn and drums; the well-judged release of cumulative tension by the whole band,"- Kevin Le Gendre, from the liner notes

"Saxophonist Omri Ziegele was born in Israel in 1959. He studied in Boston and London with, among others, Clifford Jordan, and has been a professional musician since 1980. He has done duo projects with pianist Irène Schweizer, played in her trio, Where's Africva Trio, and in the trio Schweizer Holz Trio with Urs Leimgruber and Hans Koch and a number of other projects.

Now he's out with the trio record All Those Yesterdays, along with bassist Christian Weber and drummer Han Bennink, which admittedly was recorded as early as 2016, but not mixed and released until this year.

Ziegele has released several records previously on the Swiss company Intakt Records, and here on Salt Peanuts we have previously reviewed several of them, including the band project Omri Ziegele Where's Africa, where he plays with Yves Theiler (keys, reed organ, melodica, v) and Dario Sisera (perc, dr).

We get six compositions, or lead by Ziegele, and they start with "Line for a Friend of Mine," a creative and energetic affair, where all three are at the top of the line to perform their best. And in particular, Ziegle's tough alto saxophone plays along with Bennink's incredible drum drive, while Weber is the one who keeps the beat and makes sure they don't "completely take off" already in the opening track.

We notice Ziegle's fine tone in the alto saxophone, which is traditional and not very far away for example Phil Woods. But the difference to Woods is still relatively large. For this, jazz music is much freer than Woods ever came up with (at least as far as I know).

The Second Track, "O. My God "is dedicated to another alto saxophonist who has left traces in the newer jazz, namely Ornette Coleman. Here is also the poem "The Lake Isle of Innisfree" by WB Yeats, performed by Ziegele. This is a blues that takes us a few years back, to the first meetings we had on record with Ornette Coleman, and with brilliant "four-face" play by Weber, and driving delicious drumming from Bennink, this becomes a highlight. Here, Ziegle's alto saxophone play is extremely energetic, where he does what he can to turn the toughest tones out of the saxophone, before settling down with an incredibly delicious Bennink drum solo, which is just the way we love his game, before Weber follows up. with a lovely solo that alternates with Bennink's input, before the poem comes in and we get a feel for Charles Mingus and one of his plays, or Amiri Baraka.

The title track "All Those Yesterday is another driving case of delicious alto saxophone games over an incredibly solid comp, while" Donders Wonders "takes us into something similar to Henry Threadgill's band AIR, with alto saxophone games reminiscent of Threadgill, but with a several tough drums.

Then we get "Saw That Smile", which is a bit in the same landscape, and as tough as it is almost possible to get such trio jazz, before they round off the set to take it down a bit in "When the River Spoke," which swings almost uninhibitedly and nicely, but steady bass games, fantastic drum drives and lovely alto saxophone games on top.

All Those Yesterdays has become a brilliant record in the slightly modern jazz landscape, where we meet three musicians who have really found each other. And that this trio was not invited to every possible European and American jazz festival after they were in the studio in 2016 is strange. But maybe we can have a reunion for the trio now, after this amazing record is out. And if you have a sense of what Threadgill did with the trio AIR a few years ago, then you should definitely check out this recording, as this swings if possible even more and better than the excellent trio AIR. And tougher drumming than what we get here, look for a long time!

Fantastic!"-Jan Granlie, Salt Peanuts (translated by Google)
