Bio


By pushing the boundaries of composition and improvising together cohesively, Bonzo Terks excels in proliferating jazz witha startling youthful energy; unwavering and sophisticated. Harboring members that explore spontaneous composition, free jazz, ambient & textural music, noise, tape manipulations, the Quartet takes an unconventional approach to creating unique music.


"AN ENERGETIC AND LIVELY TAKE ON FREE FORM JAZZ. IT HASN’T GONE COMPLETELY INTO EXPERIMENTAL NOISE PSYCHOLOGY STUDY. IT STILL LINGERS IN JAM MODE WITH ALL PLAYERS CONGEALING ALONG SMOOTH PLATEAUS, ALIGHTING AND SWIRLING INTO CRESCENDOS, ONLY TO EVENTUALLY DROP THE BOTTOM OUT. THERE’S A PUNK VIBE I GATHER MOSTLY FROM THE INTRUDING BASS WITH IT’S TONE AND HOW IT JUMPS AROUND. THE ORGAN, PIANO, FENDER RHODES? IS ALWAYS A GOOD JAM INSTRUMENT BECAUSE OF IT’S RANGE, BUT THE TONE IS ALSO MAGNIFICENT IN THE BONZO TERKS. THE DRUMS AND THE SAX HELP FINISH THE FOUNDATION OF STAGGERING WEBS OF CONTINUOUS ENTRIES TOWARDS A DIRECTION LEFT OPEN FOR THE FATES TO DECIDE."
