The Australian cult band The Necks will open the 2011 edition of the Angel City Jazz Festival at downtown’s newest jazz club, The Blue Whale. Chris Abrahams (piano), Tony Buck (drums), and Lloyd Swanton (bass) conjure a chemistry together that defies description in orthodox terms. Featuring lengthy pieces that slowly unravel in the most mesmerizing fashion, their music throws forth new charms on each hearing. Not entirely avant-garde, nor minimalist, nor ambient, nor jazz, the music of The Necks is possibly unique in the world today.
