Tipples – International Improvised Music
Frode Gjerstad, Kevin Norton, David Watson
Tipples is a dynamic improvising trio, a vibrant meeting of three very distinct personal histories within the field of improvised music. Intelligent playing combined with a visceral energy - this trio is rooted in the experience of improvisation and dedicated to taking the music into the future. The trio first came together for a recording in New York that became their first release, the critically acclaimed CD, "Tipples" (out on FMR).
"Right from the gitgo, this is tight, high-end improv at its most exciting."
Bruce Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery, 2012
"The trio interacts with lightning fast reflexes to each other.
And yet …., it’s the quieter moments really highlight the scope and depth of this trio."
New York City Jazz Record, September 2011
