Angles has existed as an ensemble of various formats, lately as nonet, octet, and sextet. However, Angles 3 is the original version from which the expansion started about ten years ago. Angles performs regularly in Europe (Serbia, Slovenia, Portugal, Holland, Belgium, Sweden, etc). This is our first USA tour in this original trio format.
Swedish Martin K. is besides his work with Angles regularly performing solo. His solo recording Hellstorm got rave reviews in media and blogs. “The incredible sadness that permeates the whole album is relatively unique, including the abandon with which Küchen is willing to expose his own feelings in what some might call brutally sentimental.” (freejazzblog.org)
