"TAKE THE DUCK" is an international Jazz Quartet
founded in 1998 by Toine Thys (B) on alt sax and Daniel Noesig (A) on trumpet. The rhythm section of "TAKE THE DUCK" is Robert Jukic (Slo) on acoustic bass and Thorsten Grau (D) on drums.
This second CD of band Take The Duck was recorded in Austria and Belgium, with guests musicians Maarten van der Grinten on guitar, and Martin Reiter on Rhodes.
‘TAKE THE DUCK’ is many things: an international jazz group, a mysterious name (best small group’s name of year 2002), a quartet without chord-instrument, thousands of kilometers on the road, a three-voices harmony quiz, or a pacific austrian-belgian-german enterprise, perhaps a great concentration of price-winner musicians... But more than that, it is a real BAND (sometimes hard to find these days) with an impressive and specific sound.
Two fifths of the acclaimed group Irreversible Entanglements create a revolutionary LP celebrating Latin and Afro-Caribbean influences through intricate drum and brass arrangements. Bandcamp Album of the Day Oct 21, 2020
