Vinyl LP-only pressing. This playful, freewheeling and energetic trio is comprised of three of Europe's most in demand and respected jazz musicians. Joining Finn Peters on flutes and sax, we have the highly individual playing of Oren Marshall (Sons of Kemet) on tuba and Tom Skinner (Melt Yourself Down, Owiny Sigoma Band) on drums. Both have collaborated extensively with Finn over the years, most notably on his critically acclaimed 'Music of the Mind' project. In some respects the Grip is a reaction to the Music of the Mind project, that heavily featured live sampling, electronics and 'covered the stage with wires'. Wanting to bring the music down to earth again, this completely acoustic trio was born. Inspired by stories fictional and true, their telepathic compositions encompass music from hard blues to free bop and deep funk.
