Joe Hertenstein's HNH / Bio

HNH2015 out on CleanfeedRecords May2015!


Stef Gijssels (freejazzblog - 12/2010)

«What his trio brings here is a pure delight, finding an interesting niche of incredibly rhythmic free improvisation: the music swings from beginning to end, but then with the improvisational and sonic freedom of modern music, never losing the implicit pulse and forward drive that underpins every note they play. The trio leads us through abstract environments but the blues is never far away.»


Glenn Astarita (allaboutjazz - 12/2010)
"The trio largely works within medium-tempo vamps, steeped within dark and mysterious musical architectures and uncovering hidden treasures amid subtle hues and high-impact dynamics."


Kevin Whitehead (from album linernotes)

"HNH create the shape of a performance from scratch, even when playing a written melody. They avoid clichés as a group as well as on their own. Time-play, texture-play and harmonic improvising are equally available at any moment."
