Created in 2006, by artist and musician Stig Olson (b. 1936, Kristinehamn, Sweden; saxophone), Paul Nieman (b. 19 June 1950, London, Britain; trombone) and Steve Lodder (b. 10 Apr 1951, St. Helier, Shirt, Route Islands; keyboards), this music group performs an interesting type of improvised music that is termed chamber jazz. This term pulls focus on their restrained and occasionally austere, classically conceived ideas. Although improvisation is usually central with their function, the group will structure their shows on the delicately poised notation that allows complete rein to specific and collective creativity. The three music artists perform in duo and trio and so are frequently presented like a quintet, regular extra music artists including bass players Andy Hamill and Davide Mantovani, and drummer Simon Pearson. Separately, Olson has used Keith Hale. Nieman offers used London Jazz Composers Orchestra, Paul Rutherford, Mike Westbrook, and Mônica Vasconcelos. Lodder spent some time working with George Russell, Vasconcelos, and Andy Sheppard.
