Ignaz Schick [Berlin] – alto sax
Clayton Thomas [Berlin] – double bass
Paul Lovens [Aachen/Nickelsdorf] – drums

“The ghosts of memory’s melody haunt the ragged swing. The time changes, but stays true, shifting tempo but never direction. In this trio, Ignaz Schick returns to the roots from which his complex and diverse musical history have grown – the songs of Don Cherry and Albert Ayler and Duke Ellington and JS Bach -bringing with him two improvisers who sharing the path.  Paul Lovens – a founding father of the next stage of European jazz and Clayton Thomas, a bassist blasting the borders between electro-acoustic, free jazz and total improvisation –  provide the ebb and flow of this unique song – improvised from the core.”
