The Tune Recreation Committee (TRC) announces their much-anticipated Album Launch Tour in July 2017. The formidable quintet comprising of some of Cape Town’s finest young musicians, featuring Clement Benny on drums, Nicholas Williams on bass, Keenan Ahrends on guitar, Mandla Mlangeni on trumpet and Mark Fransman on alto saxophone, flute and accordion.
The unit has performed to rousing applause in this year’s 18th annual Cape Town International Jazz Festival. The Cape Town –based TRC takes original tunes and reinvents nods from their influences to embracing the vibrant underground music scene of drum and bass to Balkanology. Fusing imported sounds and exporting to their own flavour, either going into a Ghoema -tinged feel or just improvising around the melody.
The T.R.C is the playground for the interrogation, assimilation and extended extemporization from the canon of South African jazz heritage.
