The Kassa Overall Trio is a think tank thet takes the concepts and repertoire of jazz legends and morphs them into modern perspective. Artist like Thelonius Monk, Yusef Lateef, Max Roach and John Coltrane All have much to give to today’s music world, not to be copied but to be used as inspiration for new approaches. Kassa Overall is a multifaceted creator, and wishes to find new ways to fuse “genre” to find new modes of expression. Though the band is technically a trio, the band finds ways to expand the soundscape with electronic loops, creating live loops and bringing in various timbres beyond the acoustic setting. The mission statement behind this group is not to recreate what the jazz masters did in their time, but what would they do in modern times. What would they do if they had acces to all the styles and technology of today.
