Bass Tone Trap

~ Group


"A high level of invention, atmosphere and execution by six very talented musicians.....a fine ensemble achievement." - Michael Holloway, Jazz Beat

"A mish-mash of freeform jazz, jagged funk and empty spaces...great to tangle to." - This is entertainment

"This Sheffield six piece brim with courageous ambition, two guitarists and two reed players locked in a clinch somewhere between Soft Machine and Archie Shepp. The swirl of circular improvisations suggests this is one collective who could actually play a jazz-rock that moves and involves." - Richard Cook, NME

"Angular and funky post- punk jazz rock it smacks variously of the magic band, ornette coleman's prime time, pigbag, rip rig & panic, and the voice of god collective". (The wire)

"Music à la Coque rende nuovamente disponibile un piccolo capo d'opera della musica radicale inglese, originariamente edito nell'83.Il quarto di secolo o quasi passato nulla toglie (anzi) al deflagrante potenziale di questo sestetto di Sheffield che aveva scelto una strada pericolosa e affascinante, in equilibrio tra il free funk di Ornette Coleman, le dissonate asimmetrie della coeva New York no wave, il ricordo pressante della stagione aurea del free jazz inglese." (blow up)

"The (re-mastered) music of Bass Tone Trap sounds remarkably fresh after all those years. Their punk jazz offers a nice mix of british funky new wave and free improvising". (VITAL WEEKLY number 532 week 26)
