Angelica Sanchez / Gustavo Aguilar / Henrik Frisk trio

De två amerikanska musikerna Angelica Sanchez och Gustavo Aguilar på piano respektive slagverk kommer tillsammans med den svenske saxofonisten Henrik Frisk (även elektronik) att göra en turné i Sverige i perioden den 13-20 april, 2011. Gruppen, som spelar tillsammans med live-elektronikgurun Earl Howard i New York i november, är en utvidgning av Sanchez och Aguilars duo som har varit aktiv i några år. Tillsammans spelar trion en suggestiv musik där elektroniken samsas på lika villkor med de akustiska klangerna.

Ett utdrag ur en inspelning med duon Angelica Sanchez / Gustavo Aguilar finns här.
