John Dikeman has been a busy man making a name for himself as an American born saxophonist living abroad in Amsterdam since 2007 (with short stints in NYC, Philadelphia & Cairo, Egypt prior). He is a member of free-wheeling noise/improv group Cactus Truck and also plays in the trio Universal Indians who just did a tour with Joe McPhee! On top of that John has played with William Parker, Hamid Drake, Han Bennink, Andy Moor, Terrie Ex, Roy Campbell, Ab Baars, Wilbert De Joode, Fred Lonberg-Holm among many others! This particular tape “The Double Trio” finds Dikeman back on US soil in 2011 in Chicago, IL leading a group featuring some of Chicago’s top improvisers: Jeb Bishop, Joshua Abrams, Jason Roebke, Mike Reed & Frank Rosaly. This is the kind of recording that invites multiple listens, revealing new layers every time.
