The Necks

Jez Nelson presents a gig by The Necks, recorded during their three-day residency at London's Café Oto.

This Sydney-based trio often seems to elicit superlatives: unique according to The Wire, the New York Times has proclaimed them 'the best band in the world' and their distinctive brand of slowly-evolving, minimal groove has won them a cult following - no mean feat for an ensemble built mostly on improvisation.

Together now for 25 years, Chris Abrahams (piano) Lloyd Swanton (bass) and Tony Buck (drums) return once more to Café Oto and to Jazz on 3.
