Josh Berman – cornet / Paul Lytton – percussion / Jason Roebke – double bass

Tour period: March 30, 2018 – April 7, 2018

contact: Jason Roebke sixdollarsuit@gmail.com

The trio of Chicagoans Josh Berman (cornet) and Jason Roebke (double bass) and English free improvisation legend Paul Lytton came together in 2016 for a short European tour. The trio presented music from Berman’s critically acclaimed recording “A Dance and A Hop” on Delmark Records. On the course of the tour, the music became freer and freer, finally arriving at a unique language where trad jazz and pure sound improv come together. It’s a truly fresh sound and context for these three improvisers.
