From New York United

Bringing together New York downtown free jazz saxophonist, clarinettist and flautist Daniel Carter, Tobias Wilner from Danish electronic band Blue Foundation, Wu-Tang Clan bass player Djibril Toure and longtime Carter associate, Italian drummer Federico Ughi, this stellar international quartet have combined the classic sound of the New York avant garde (John Coltrane, Albert Ayler, etc) with electronic manipulation and production on their debut album. Live, they have already played a number of concerts in New York, including the Forward Festival in 2016 and 2018.
