Decoy with Joe McPhee (UK, US)

Three masters of the current British improvisation music scene form the trio Decoy.
In their musical flow of playing countless allusions to the jazz tradition show trough, as well as alienation, almost electronic soundscapes. Quiet passages turn into energetic powerplay. The Brits met saxophone and (!) trumpet player Joe McPhee at Londons legendary Café Oto – the start of an exceptional friendship. McPhees distinctive play is deeply rooted in the tradition of the blues and fits the Trio perfectly.
