Biggi Vinkeloe Trio featuring Peter Kowald and Peeter Uuskyla performed first time together in Wuppertal in 1995.
Scandinavian tours followed and a studio recording back in Wuppertal was made January 1999. The album was titled ”Slowdrags and Interludes” and became soon released by LJ-Records (LJCD5219).
In November 2000 the trio played the Umeå Jazz Festival.
Twenty years later the live board recording of this unique concert has finally been transferred, edited and mastered. So why not have a listen?

Total mastery of patience, time, and drama create a constantly engaging journey that never gets tiresome or same-y: in fact the harder you listen the better it gets! Somehow Sorey et al. find a way to combine the deep listening and spontaneous interaction of the best jazz with the sense of every tone and sound being worth a universe of listening, which could be equally from Cage and Feldman or the accompaniment to an ancient ritual.
The recording/engineering is absolutely perfect as well. Giles
