"Hypnotic, sensuous, dream-like, enveloping, funky, seductive, subtle, credible -- Australian jazz trio The Necks have re-written all the rules. They are a (mostly) acoustic piano trio whose music sounds as much like ambient electronic dance music as it does like conventional jazz. But healthy doses of influence from R&B, Kraut Rock, The Doors, ethnic musics, Miles Davis and John Coltrane also abound. The Necks are drummer Tony Buck, double bassist Lloyd Swanton and pianist Chris Abrahams. Their records and live concerts are all made using the same process; they start with an improvising idea, and then transform the material ever so slowly. It's a devastatingly simple but original approach, which calls for extreme concentration from the players, but for the listener the experience is as fluid and profound and as meditating on a sunset or watching the ebb and flow of the ocean. Somehow with a seemingly effortless cool they charm the sounds out of their instruments."
