Zen Bicycle Band
BAND / ARTIST
ZBB started out as an idea of Clive's to record an album of free improvisation.
No pre-planning, no discussion beforehand.
2 days in the studio and they had enough music to edit into a CD. Was it any good? The band liked it, but they weren't sure what everyone else would think. Gigging the music was going to be even more difficult, because it would definitely not sound like the album - and with a name like Zen Bicycle Band, there were many in the jazz world who were very unsure that they would like it
A gig at the Harbour Jazz Club and one at the Louis Armstrong in Dover followed and the audience response was fantastic. CD's sold well and even die-hard jazz fans enjoyed the experience. But of course, ZBB is not a jazz band. In fact, it is difficult to know what it is.
The band were approached at a recent gig in Chatham by a member of the audience who had spent the last 40 years collecting free and improvised music. His view "I've never heard anythjing like it"
The band continue to develop their music through the concept of 'creating in concert'.
