It’s hard to pinpoint how The Necks sound because they sound like nothing and everything all at once. Their minimalistic, repetitive improvisation with piano, drums and bass sounds like it’s coming from one single never-heard-before instrument. The Necks can be delicately quiet where the slightest contact between a drumstick and a cymbal will take the music in a totally new direction, and they can come at you loud and fierce. They are a very rare musical experience.
This concert was filmed at Jazzhouse in Copenhagen and The Necks perform a piece called “Ohioan”.
