"A new band of three bada**es… Anthony Cox (upright bass), Brandon Wozniak (tenor saxophone) and Dave King (drums) together? Power trio. King is best known internationally as a member of the Bad Plus; he’s also part of Happy Apple, Halloween Alaska and several more bands and projects. Wozniak has been literally blowing us away since he returned to the cities in 2006 after six years in New York and six months in Shanghai. Anthony Cox is a legend."
