Dear friends of improvised music, we will start our new concert season at the MUG on Thursday and are looking forward to a series of exciting events.
Pat Thomas (piano and electronics)
Phillipp Wachsmann (violin and electronics)
Roger Turner (percussion)
Alexander Frangenheim (bass)
WTTF - no, not "welcome to the future." Nor is this short for "want to trade for." No - this acronym built of the initial letters of surnames simply announces four first-rate improvisors.
Phil Wachsmann (violin and electronics), Pat Thomas (piano and electronics), Roger Turner (percussion) and Alexander Frangenheim (bass) have recorded together once in 1997 for a session at London's Gateway Studios.
Power, concentration, mutual respect as well as humor are the hallmarks of the resulting sound document, released only fifteen years later and the reason for a reunion of this by now historical quartet for an Offene Ohren concert at MUG.
Three of these four protagonists played at some of our earlier concerts, then still hosted at different venues: Roger Turner together with Konk Pack at the Phoenix Lounge, Alexander Frangenheim as part of Chris Burn's trio together with Axel Dörner at the Black Box, and Phillipp Wachsmann as part of the Lines Quartet at Seidlvilla.
These legendary performances evoke a kaleidoscope of remembrances which really make us curious about the musical event to be expected with the added presence of MUG novice Pat Thomas.
