New CD from breathtaking quartet Peeping Tom – including some of the most active musicians in the European scene of current music.
With a sophisticated and flagrant musical language – inspired by be-bop, swing, avant garde and contemporary music – Peeping Tom explores (and proposes) a jazz of our times.
Four Girls is multi-dimensional and opposite. Just as complex as lucid and distinct. Just as emotional as mathematical. Just as much in the tradition as out of tradition.
Peeping Tom is a polyphonic act, encouraging the listener (the audience as well as the band members) to step out of predetermined roles and foregone conclusions, and therefore puts the musical momentum on constant trial.
