This Canadian/Danish project came together in May, 2007, when Toronto bassist Graig Earle invited fellow Canucks—saxophonist/clarinetist Brodie West and drummer Kevin Brow—to play with acclaimed Danish pianist Simon Toldam in Denmark. Goo! blends free improv with more structured, rhythmically complex compositions to create original music that is accessible to a broad audience. Individually, Graig Earle is best known for his work with Richard Underhill, Kevin Turcotte, and Denzal Sinclaire. Brodie West plays improvised music in a variety of formats including Drumheller, Lina Allemano 4, and the Ex, and has toured with drummer Han Bennink. Award-winning Simon Toldam is Denmark’s best-known improviser/composer of the new generation. He has performed with Evan Parker and Peter Brotzmann. Kevin Brow has just released his debut album as a leader called Koptor
(Fresh Sounds).
