Hans Peter Hiby Trio

Hans-Peter Hiby (saxophone), Michael Bardon (bass/electronics), Paul Hession (drums)

Hans Peter Hiby first encountered British drummer Paul Hession in the Winter of 1986 when they started playing together as a duo in Hiby’s home-town of Wuppertal. Having grown up and spending much of his childhood with Caspar Brötzmann, Hiby has deep roots within the Wuppertaler free jazz community.

Hiby/Hession has played throughout Germany as well as Switzerland, Austria, Belgium and the Netherlands and on occasions augmented the duo with bass players Marcio Mattos, Roberto Bellatalla, Peter Kowald and recently Dieter Manderscheid.

For this short UK tour, Leeds-based, Fusebox favourite, bass player Michael Bardon completes the trio. He has played throughout the UK and Europe including festivals in Sardinia, Germany, Italy and Poland and his dynamic playing is the perfect fit for this trio.
