[New] KCL reveal the dates for the 2022 US tour

KCL, aka Wayne Krantz (Steely Dan, Michael Brecker), Keith Carlock (Steely Dan, Toto), Tim Lefebvre (Tedeschi Trucks, David Bowie) are a genre-defying iconic band firmly positioned at the vanguard of their craft, pushing their stylistic roots in Rock, Jazz, Fusion & Blues beyond their boundaries.

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 sidelined 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 re-ignites to tour with incendiary shows in the USA.
