Anyone who is familiar with the work of Wayne Krantz, Keith Carlock and Tim Lefebvre knows that this concert is guaranteed to be a huge pleasure. Those who have never heard this outstanding fusion jazz/power trio play together before, however, have nevertheless very likely encountered their playing - on guitar, drums and bass guitar - as session musicians of the first rank, including, for example, on David Bowie's final album, Blackstar, among the 'band of musicians' that made up Steely Dan's later line-up, or even at one of Sting's concerts in Budapest.
Guitarist Wayne Krantz started to release his improv-based and effectless music with the German jazz label Enja in the early '90s. By the middle of the decade, he found a home at the New York club 55 Bar, where he took the stage every Thursday night. It was in 1997 that he first played alongside drummer Keith Carlock and bass guitarist Tim Lefebvre, and on most weeks between then and 2007, the trio would dazzle music fans arriving - lured by word of mouth - from more and more points all over the... world. Their improvisational music transcending genre and style simultaneously conveyed the tension of a power trio, the inspired mutual listening of fusion jazz musicians and the unpredictability of a jam band. In 2009, after making several concert recordings (and numerous digital releases), they also came out with a superb studio album. Since then, however, they have all been following their own paths: Krantz had toured with Steely Dan in 1996 and later suggested that they engage Carlock, who has also played drums with Sting on his Sacred Love tour and such others as Toto and John Mayer. Lefebvre, for his part, played bass on Bowie's final album and was a member of the Tedeschi Trucks Band, not to mention appearing with pop acts like David Holmes and Empire Of The Sun. He has also been featured on several Hungarian records, accompanying both Béla Szakcsi Lakatos and Tony Lakatos. A decade later, the trio have reunited in order to both live up to the expectations that their legendary reputation have fostered and satisfy the curiosity of those who have so far only had the chance to marvel at this unmatched shared musical resonance on audio or video recordings.
