Bo van de Graaf (saxophones), Michiel Braam (piano) and Fred van Duijnhoven (drums) are total mofos. Here they play several short, jazz-based, mostly free improvisations, aided and abetted by poet/performer Simon Vinkenoog. Occasionally Vinkenoog slips in a bit of English, but mostly he recites in a language, presumably Dutch, that I don’t understand. But he definitely has a feel for rhythm, which serves him well when he jams with the insanely spontaneous trio.
