TxT ensemble is a brand-new group led by jazz guitarist Tjoe and tap dancer Tansei. Joining them are double bass player Jeff Lehmberg and trumpeter Farley Angel.
Tjoe and Taisei first collaborated in the winter of 2017, performing in the band NTBM, and since then they’ve developed and composed music tailored for tap dancing and jazz improvisation, and have also re-arranged jazz standards. Their shows always feature live music, especially improvised jazz – because tapping is like talking musically.
