TIED + TICKLED TRIO

 

"Since the mid-90s more and more boundaries between rock, electronica, and jazz have been broken down. The Tied + Tickled Trio is known for pushing genre mix-ups even a bit further. Combining sampling and editing techniques with traditional (collective) improvising, this band works like a strong but sophisticated machine. Several layers of soundscapes and (programmed as well as drum stick driven) beat patterns are created for elaborate jazz saxophone tunes to surf on top of them. The tenor sax provides an edgy element that typical post-rock outfits lack in their featureless instrumental crawl through wide spread sound textures." Forced Exposure USA
