ROIL is a collaboration between pianist Chris Abrahams (well known foe his work with The Necks), bassist Mike Majkowski, and drummer James Waples. Formed in 2007, this Sydney-based trio has been developing their own approach to jazz improvisation. There is a controlled elegance to Roil’s music — not that this precludes the energetic. The music has an eddying quality that moves between group utterance and multi–stranded counterpoint, a weaving of textures that coagulate to form unified phrases before dispersing once more into the churning invention…

“A beautifully weighted trio, full of delicacy, mesmerizing accumulations of detail and engulfing power ” (John Clare)

 “…this essay in sound challenges preconceptions…” (Roger Mitchell)

 “…bright piano, rich bass and bass drum packing a mighty punch.” (John Shand)
