Since the early 70´s Eugene Chadbourne (Doc Chad) has been an icon of improvised guitar- and banjo playing, John Zorn calls upon him as a point of reference. He has composed a series of songs called "Butterfly Songs", which are the core of this project. Internationally acclaimed quartett "1000" has been around for 10 years and has basically achieved everything, a modern "jazzband" can do in Europe. 3 well reputated CD´s on famous labels such as Leo Records, concerts in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany, excellent reviews worldwide.
