FRANK ROBERTS PIANO

SIMON DIMOV DRUMS

MORTEN ELBÆCK EL BASS

Jazz Piano Trio ……..Music influenced by Miles D. Herbie Hancock :Wayne Shorter; McCOY the Tyner ; Chick Corea…Keith Jarrett Dollar Brand

Wynton Kelly …..oooopss i nearly forgot our dear departed friend Josef Erik Zawinul………how could I do that sorry Joe…rest in peace …..miss you !!
We play standards and our own stuff….and sometimes the solos are too long!!!!!!!(usually when the money is too short!!??**!!??

we play at Torups Kælder(stor torv 3) every thursday…."Moni" Dimov from Bulgaria is the drummer who usually has the chair …..sometimes John Nehan Nielsen takes over …..
On bass we have several buddies who come and help us out when they can …….Jesper Carlsen….Poul-Erik Jørgensen …Thomas Lykkegaard(??) Madsen
ehlers (who else ellers)…….Jens Jefsen…

The music…………We try to keep things swinging and interesting………I have a "tendancy" to….."seek the edge" and the outer limits.so to speak…..and sometimes people think this is too much………..but this IS jazz????!!!!!!!!!????2"THE SOUND OF SURPRISE"..there are certainly surprisesin the music of the Frank Roberts Trio….
……(ask one of the bass players…!!?**??!!)….and I get surprised by what happens in the music sometimes to!!!!!!!!!!!

I think all the guys that play with the trio have a common concern ..that the music SWINGS and that we get to have some FUN…and that our audience gets that and can share it with us…..(we do not have any æsthetic reservations about getting to……get PAID either….or even getting to …get L…..D..*???*..).
thats it for now and thats that
