Third Man Trio

Han Bennink, drums
Michael Moore, reeds
Will Holshouser, accordion

Since the demise of the legendary and critically-acclaimed Trio Clusone - featuring Han Bennink, Michael Moore and Ernst Reijseger - in 1998, the jazz community has been anxiously awaiting a vehicle for composer Moore and the raucous Bennink to carry on with their peculiar melodic, harmonic and rambunctious work. Following a near decade-long search, Bennink and Moore, both members of Misha Mengelberg's Instant Composers Pool, found the ideal "third man" in Brooklyn-based accordionist Will Holshouser. Holshouser, a student of Anthony Braxton, has collaborated with Antony and the Johnsons, David Krakauer & Klezmer Madness, Maria Schneider and Regina Carter.

One of the founding fathers of European improvised music, Bennink (b.1942) has performed with Sonny Rollins, Wes Montgomery, Eric Dolphy and Dexter Gordon. With fellow Dutch pioneers, pianist Misha Mengelberg and saxophonist Willem Breuker, he founded the musicians¹ collective Instant Composers Pool in 1967, with which he still performs. Since, Bennink has collaborated frequently with Steve Lacy, Roswell Rudd, Peter Brötzmann, Derek Bailey and Dave Douglas, among others. A student of Jaki Byard and Gunther Schuller, Moore is also known for his work with Fred Hersch and Jewels and Binoculars.
