A 21st century power trio that vaporize generic boundaries with their ear-cleansing assault of sliced thrash guitar, jagged saxophone and hyper-kinetic beats, this adrenaline-fuelled three piece have been wowing festival audiences across Europe.
“Absolutely astounding. Stuttering, staccato riffs set up by Sharkey and Bezenac, the notes flashing back and forth, with Bussey teasing sounds, not only from the drum heads, but from the rims and the shells. Then all three locked tight in the groove, with the audience just managing to nod in time. It was magnificent.” Scotland Herald
Lithuanian saxophonist Liudas Mockunas’ brand new trio reflects the fast-growing impact of new jazz and impro from the eastern borders of Europe, with two award-winning young musicians, pianist Dmitrij Golovanov and drummer Marijus Aleksa. Mockunas has worked internationally with Andrew Hill, New Jungle Orchestra, Marc Ducret, and Vladimir Tarasov – alongside Aleksa, he takes part in a special collaboration with TrioVD, co-commissioned with the Vilnius Jazz Festival.
