Formed in early 2020 through a mutual love of numbers and odd-time signatures, Number Junky is a guitar-led trio that plays warped jazz standards and rhythmic number-crunching original music while retaining a focus on lyrical melodies and lush harmony.
The group is made up of experienced jazz improvisers. Formerly based in London, Danish guitarist Kristian Borring is joined by the rhythm section of Zac Grafton on bass, and Peter Evans on drums – both originally from the Eastern states, now established players in Perth.
The trio’s forthcoming debut album contains Borring's original compositions and modern arrangements of Charlie Parker tunes. New York pianist Fabian Almazan is also featured on selected tracks.
