MMM QUARTET
OAKLAND/LISBOA

Joëlle Léandre
: double bass
Fred Frith: electric guitar
Alvin Curran: piano, synthesizer, samples
Urs Leimgruber: tenor and soprano saxophone

This is powerful music, even dangerous. Not just because of this quartet’s name - MillsMusicMafia (aka MMM) - which offers some irreverent tendencies among its musicians. It is dangerous because of its suggestive power on us, a power that transcends the music, forming it into a deep spiritual experience one that may motivate us to kick out habits, beliefs, even regimens.
