HNH Clean Feed CD Release
Joe Hertenstein - drums,comp ; Pascal Niggenkemper - bass ; Thomas Heberer - quarter-tone trp, comp
Drei Kölner aus New York, der Schlagzeuger und Komponist Joe Hertenstein praesentiert sein Trio HNH mit Thomas Heberer und Pascal Niggenkemper im Rahmen der CD-Release-Tour für Clean Feed Records.
From album linernotes by Kevin Whitehead: "Each player listens to and prods the others, as HNH create the shape of a performance from scratch, even when playing a written melody. They avoid clichés as a group as well as on their own. Time-play, texture-play and harmonic improvising are equally available at any moment."
CleanFeedRecords Pressrelease: "Hertenstein and Heberer make their compositions catchy and visionary at the same time. Each piece here – composed, improvised, or a mix – finds its own form: supple, pulsating, swinging and highly explorative."
Glenn Astarita on allaboutjazz.com: "The trio largely works within medium-tempos, steeped within dark and mysterious musical architectures and uncovering hidden treasures amid subtle hues and high-impact dynamics."
