The Necks – Live at Café Oto, Monday 7th November

I had the pleasure of seeing The Necks live in concert last Monday as part of their 30th anniversary tour. For those that don’t know, the Necks are an Australian improvisational jazz trio, consisting of pianist Chris Abrahams, Bassist Lloyd Swanton and Drummer/Percussionist Tony Buck. Their sets (and sometimes albums) are entirely improvised on the spot, so the concert I saw on Monday existed only for the night. Perhaps it’s contrary to the spirit of the evening that I’m attempting to capture some of that experience for you, but if music doesn’t inspire you to think, feel and even write, then what the hell’s it for?
