After their 2020 world tour.  KCL, the iconic, genre-bending powerhouse trio featuring guitarist Wayne Krantz, drummer Keith Carlock and bassist Tim Lefebvre is returning with a string of dates to kick off their “Golden Days” 2022  tour, starting in New York City on Feb 18 at The Bitter End.  Cutting live recordings from the club and posting them online in the early days of the internet and touring only sporadically, KCL developed a thoroughly original style of interactive group improvisation inspired in part by the great Miles Davis Quintet of the 60s but played out in spontaneously generated contexts of heavy funk, rock, and electronica instead of straight-ahead swing.

As other instrumental bands of the day dabbled in derivative fusion and retro-jazz, KCL became an underground phenomenon, cultivating an international following of devoted fans of every stripe looking for an alternative creative music that served the mind, body, and spirit. Relentlessly grooving, always innovative, never complacent - KCL made contemporary music that resonated beyond category.

Other sideman obligations hampered the band soon after their Abstract Logix release, “Krantz Carlock Lefebvre,” in 2010, but their reputation continued to expand globally through fan circulation of the band’s many live videos and recordings. Now, in 2022, KCL reunites to tour with incendiary shows in the USA, and in Europe and Asia later in the year.
