XJAZZ live & ASK HELMUT present: Three Fall & Melane
Their unusual instrumentation, drums plus two blowing instruments proved rapidly successful.
Three Fall had been a trio ever since their formation in 2008. Their unusual instrumentation, drums plus two blowing instruments – i.e. not following the convention of having either a bass or a harmony instrument – proved rapidly successful. Their 2011 ACT debut “On A Walkabout” had new instrumental versions of tunes by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, which the Peppers’ drummer Chad Smith has described as the best cover versions he has ever heard. It has now been four years since the release of the subsequent Three Fall album “Realize”. The lads have been traveling the world – just in the year of 2016 they performed in Egypt, Qatar, Japan and South Korea. And then they met Melane....“Ever since we worked with hiphop artist Promoe on one of the tracks on “On A Walkabout”, we had the idea of performing with a singer”, explains trombonist Til Schneider. “When happened to see Melane at a festival, I was blown away immediately. She can sing, dance and rap. Plus she has unbelievable charisma.”
