The Dutch trumpeter teams up with virtuosic Belgian accordion improviser Tuur Florizoone and German cellist Jörg Brinkmann.

From 5049 Records.

Trevor Dunn is just about the sweetest dude you’ll ever meet. Whether it’s electric or upright, jazz or intense metal, he plays the bass with a virtuosity that is all too rare and with a true insider’s feel. Since moving to Brooklyn in 2000, he’s worked steadily with the best musicians that the city has to offer, everyone from John Zorn to Marc Ribot, Sean Lennon to Nels Cline. Before that he was an essential part of the Bay Area scene and a founding member of Mr. Bungle. It is safe to say that if I had not discovered Mr. Bungle as an impressionable twelve year old, I wouldn’t be in experimental music.
