Saxtrio. Inspired by classical music and folk themes. A trio that swops easily between a minimal music way of creating a rhythm pattern and strong melodies.

Compositions by Frank van der Kooij.

Project – The Pyonyang Express (2009)

Two of the three players are British and members of the Delta Saxophone quartet (London). In 2009 they travelled together with Frank van der Kooij to China and North Korea. This journey was initialised by Henk Weltevreden (VPRO Radio – Holland) who made most of the field recordings. The CD (Pyonyang Express) which came out of this trip was later recorded in Londen – Richmond.
