peeping tom

peeping tom is a french-swedish trio working since 2007 on the music of bebop masters like Charlie Parker, Bud Powell and Thelonious Monk. I think that our music is bopping, bebop. The trio is focused on underlining the main characteristics of bebop — various speeds, breaks, fastness and celerity.

            paB: alto saxophone
            Axel Dörner is the trumpeter
            Joel Grip is playing bass
            & Antonin Gerbal is drumming
We have played many concerts over the world — France, Sweden, Russia, Germany, UK, USA, Finland, Norway —, played with guests Alan Silva, Evan Parker and David Stackenäs, and released two albums, "file under: bebop" and "boperation" on Umlaut Records (both with artwork by Sven-åke Johnasson).
