Holshouser, Bennink & Moore: Live in NYC

Recorded live at Drom in New York on the last night of an exciting US tour.
A collaborative trio in which Holshouser (known as "Junior" in this band) teams up with two of his heroes from the European jazz / avant-garde scene. Moore and Bennink are well known for their work in many settings, including their own ICP Orchestra and Trio Clusone. Sonic abstraction blends seamlessly with lovely tunes and impassioned playing all around.Michael Moore, clarinet, bass clarinet, saxophone, melodica; Will Holshouser, accordion; Han Bennink, snare drum.
