The style is ambient layered analogue and electronic trio jazz. Easy listening, easy to like, but still with a complexity of layers that brings out new details every time you listen to it!
Even though you hear influences from bands and musicians like The Necks, Ahmad Jamal, Herbie Hancock and Abida Parveen, TSC brings in fresh new inventions and dímensions to the piano trio format on this their first release.
Live at the living room is the first session ever by TSC! It’s 100% improvised and live, only mixing and cutting into smaller pieces is done after the recording. After a short briefing by August Engkilde explaining the some basic ideas, those 3 fantastic musicians played those 11 beautiful pieces within a 2 days session in the living room of August’s house. The common reactions from all three band members after the recording was “ I never played any music like this before, it really has something special”, and that has to be understood by having in mind that TSC is a constellation of very skilled and excellent musicians that on their C.V. among others have played and recorded with lots of great artists like Peter Brötzmann, Evan Parker, Chris Speed, Tim Berne, Django Bates, Mold, Andrea Parkins, Pole, Atomheart, Senor Coconut, Patrick Pulsinger, Flanger, Burnt Friedman, Ignacio Berroa and Lew Soloff. The basic ideas from August was: Don’t be afraid of playing the same phrase for a long time, don’t be afraid if the track ends up being an hour long, please no “jazz” clichés, look at your self as a part of a multi layered picture where each layer can be a picture of it’s own.
This is the first release in the brumtone series of open improvisations, please read more about this at brumtone.com
