Melancholy instrumental trio CATFISH formed in Portland, Oregon in 2013, led by saxophonist Joe Cunningham (Blue Cranes, Battle Hymns & Gardens). After enlisting Portland veterans, guitarist Dan Duval (The Ocular Concern, PJCE Sextet, Gunga Galunga) and drummer Ken Ollis (Ken Ollis Group, The Demolition Duo, Paxselin Quartet), Cunningham formed CATFISH, a vehicle for open improvisations in the vein of Dirty Three, Paul Motian Trio, and early Cat Power.
The Knows Nose
We come before you with all of this stuff unfinished. This is not a teaching or a system, or an anything, it’s an eyewitness account of a hyperdimensional automobile accident, or something. We’re not saying what the conclusions are, because we don’t know what the conclusions are.
The Knows Nose is a stringed-percussion trio that plays music with a heavily improvised element. (http://theknowsnose.bandcamp.com)
