THE KLiP trio
Herman Sonny Blount
(Omniversal Embassador)
LP-EDT4015

KLiP's music comes from so many divergent sources that "pigeon-holing" it is nearly impossible. Influences range from Albert Ayler, John Cage, Miles Davis, Ornette Coleman, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Cecil Taylor, John Zorn, and many others. Elliot and Garth are the primary composers and arrangers for KLiP. Though each of their pieces may have a finely honed interior structure, there is often room for improvisational explorations. Be it a contemplative melodic study or a fierce electronic onslaught, the music of KLiP is that of surprise and discovery.

"The trio uses guerilla tactics to contrast some free-form ethereal moments amid the heated avant-jazz schema. Sure enough, Blount would be proud of this trio's acceleration of the cosmologic jazz factor into previously unexplored galaxies of our respective psyches. Here, the musicians' shifty imaginations and broad vernaculars impart a mélange of cunning propositions."
- Glenn Astarita, All About Jazz

“There's a sense of otherworldliness…the sound is
amazing. There's so much space, and yet I was
completely swallowed up.”
- Jon Worley, Aiding & Abetting

"…at it's wildest peak reminds me a bit of
Borbetamagus" - Edward McElvain, Independent Mind

Elliot Kallen - piano/percussion/electronics
John Lauffenburger- bass/electronics
Garth Powell- drums/percussion
