Bloodstock themes, cascading drum fills, pumping bass lines, and flamethrower saxophone cries – LITTERJUG is a rollercoaster ride of joyful anarchy.

LITTERJUG is a Copenhagen-based trash jazz trio featuring three original improvisers from Poland, Lithuania, and Denmark.

The band’s explorations are heavily rock-inspired, with a dose of abrasive free flow improvisations. The trio offers contrast-filled, action-packed music, sometimes rocking a simple groove, and other times boldly wandering into abstract territories.

The musicians chose an impressive hill for the final – they shout, prepare, mock every phrase!

And so the rhythm is stern and tight in ‘Usurper’ and the Lithuanian Dereviancenko just about turns his tenor sax inside out Taffijn, nieuwenoten (translation from Dutch)

LITTERJUG operates like a tight collective, relying on the trust and the inventive improvisational skills of its musicians.

Eyal Hareuveni,

Great music full of power and
expression, yes dense with emotional content.
