Nästesjö/Chant/Trilla trio (NCT)


Nästesjö/Chant/Trilla trio is a new interesting impro trio from Sweden/England/Spain. Johannes Nästesjö – double bass, Tom Chant – saxophones & Vasco Trilla – drums & percussion.
A little bit more then one year ago the three members of  the NCT trio met in Barcelona. Since then they have given more than 30 concerts together in different combinations all over spain.
Their musical-language is filled with non-conventional techniques that create a balance between tention and non-tention.  No matter if they play incredibly soft or violently loud, the musical focus and the energy is always there.
The three members of the trio frequently play all over Europe and have played with groups/muscians like Agustí Fernández, Evan Parker, John Butcher, the Cinematic Orcehestra, Joe Morris and Ramon Lopez to mention a few.
