“In 2015 I started Moon Trio with in my mind a new approach and new sound. I wanted to work with these great musicians. With great pleasure I’ve been working with Cord since 2010 in Simin Tander’s 4tet, he brings a beautiful expressive sound both on double bass and bassguitar. I met Mark on several occasions and was impressed by his groove and sound and by his very personal creative ideas.
One of the features of the trio is the use of effects on the acoustic piano, as well as on the bass. It gives us a different focus, another possibility for both the compositions and the improvisations. The music is about groove and beauty, the beauty of the acoustic piano-sound. The pieces are often simple, the music emotional and groovy.
We recorded our first album winter 2015, it has been released october 2016. In 2017 we played a.o. at the Bimhuis Amsterdam, Lantaren Venster Rotterdam, North Sea Jazzfestival.”
