Paul Lytton - drums

The Alexander Von Schlippenbach Trio stood at the foundation of European improvised music at the end of the 1960s. Each of their concerts is a completely new journey of discovery for the trio, yet recognizable elements remain. Evan Parker amazes with his endless note patterns created through circular breathing. The piano playing of Alexander Von Schlippenbach brings influences of Thelonious Monk’s jazz together with principles of Arnold Schoenberg’s twelve tone music. And unlike most drummers Paul Lytton does not repeat himself for one moment.
