The Electrics consists of some of Europe’s leading improvising musicians, and is in spite of the name, an acoustic quartet.
Raymond Strid is undoubtedly one of the leading drummers in contemporary free (jazz) -music. In 2000 he took the initiative to form the quartet The Electrics. A concert by The Electrics is a musical journey through changing moods, from mellow subdued lyricism to temperamental and powerful projections. Free flow can suddenly give way to intensely swinging passages. And listeners are engaged! A concert by The Electrics is never boring!
Raymond Strid (drums), Axel Dörner (trumpet), Sture Ericson (saxophone), Joe Williams (bass)
