Reincke//Hughes//Popple focus on the music of "The Trio" and thus the compositions of John Surman, Barre Phillips and Stu Martin. Formed in 1969, “The Trio" was one of the most original and inspirational European or European-based bands (Martin and Phillips were American expatriates), whose music has unjustly been forgotten. Reincke/Hughes/Popple provide their own original interpretations, using the tunes as a springboard for powerful swinging moments, free improvisations, sizzling duets and unexpected energy explosions.
