“a welcome contrapoint to contemporary sophisticated jazz” Wolf Kampmann JAZZTHETIK

Review by Rick Joines

Bond: Recognized worldwide for the unique approach to bass. Founder of Eklektik Session international artists platform & festival and director of Eklektik Orchestra. Bond’s deep bass sound is fundamental for his alternative-pop band MILOOPA. In 2013 inspired by american band Morphine, Bond picked up a 2-string bass and together with Lucien Dubuis and Alfred Vogel formed HANG EM HIGH. The release of their 3rd album TRES TESTOSTERONES on Gig Ant / Boomslang Records is scheduled for April 2017. Bond’s work included collaboration with variety of artists such as Nils Petter Molvaer, Jan Bang, Eivind Aarset, Guo Gan, Roli Mosimann, Erland Dahlen, Ganesh Anandan, Blu Rum, Anti Pop Consortium, Pierre Jodlowski, Wu Wei, Mariam Wallentin.

Lucien Dubuis: Non-conformistic multi-reedist, has been an active musician in the jazz and improvised music scene for several years with more than 20 albums to his credit. “Chromosomic mingling of a touch of John Coltrane genes and the DNA of the Beastie Boys” is one way to describe him. Besides running own trio, he has worked with Marc Ribot, Hans Koch, Daniel Humair, Richie Beirach, Barry Guy, Kalle Kalima, Linda Sharrock, Daniel Erdmann.

Alfred Vogel: One of the most productive figures of the austrian jazz scene. Alfred Vogel is also active as producer, runs his Boomslang Records label and Bezau Beatz festival in upper Austria. His work receives attention from the free jazz world (Vogelperspektive – 5 volume compilation with guest musicians) to singer/songwriter productions. He has been working with his bands Die Glorreichen Sieben, KDR Society and Hendrix Ackle, Peter Madsen, Barry Guy, Christy Doran among others. His latest release „Blow+Beat” is a duo with Mats Gustafsson.
