The Clusone Trio (also called Trio Clusone and Clusone 3) was a creative, international band of skilled music artists who combined improvisation, original compositions and old jazz chestnuts right into a music that’s kooky and/or delicate, but always winning.

Afterwards that calendar year, they documented music that might be released in 1981 as you aspect of Taiming on Reijseger’s very own label, Hummeloord. Many years afterwards, Reijseger and Moore became a member of Bennink as associates from the ICP Orchestra.
