Trio Generations are three free-improvising musicians from three different generations.

They first met as a band in London 2016, on initiative of Swedish percussionist Matilda Rolfsson. Their music can be described as developments of spontaneous, impressionistic and abstract improvisations with elements from free jazz, song forms and vaudeville, sometimes theatrical and with a sense of despair from the deepest place, but always with evolving playfulness and with a sublime sharpness that creates tension and clarity in the music. Their debut album, “Unfolding”, (vinyl) was released on Particular recordings Collective, on Nov 2018.

Maggie Nicols, 1948. is one of the most distinguished improvisers today.
