Collectively known as Distances (also the name of their 2008 debut), the trio draw from a wide array of sources in assembling their material, everything from jazz standards to adaptations of Friulian folk songs and so called ‘chamber pieces’, influenced by contemporary classical music. Here they’ll be performing tracks from their latest album, 2014’s Dance Without Answer, which adds reinventions of music by Tom Waits, Nick Drake and Madonna to that list, along with compositions by Gesing and Venier with lyrics by Winstone.
The vibe is one of profound tranquility with Venier’s lilting accompaniments and Winstone’s characteristic, airy vocals lending an ethereal, at times entrancing, quality to the music. It’s the perfect complement to Gesing’s sonorous bass clarinet and flighty soprano sax.
