- the German/Italian trio with compositions that have something to tell
- each piece sets a little story to music
- the pieces have clear structures, but it is above all the interaction and the demand for spontaneity that distinguishes the trio

With the energy of an Entkalker and the temptation of a Muskcatcookie, the German-Italian Trio plays compositions with a strong narrative. Every track sets to music a small story. Even though the pieces have a clear structure, it is the interaction and spontaneity that characterises the trio. The classic sound of a piano trio is broadened with delicate electronic effects, as can be seen in the current music video Monster. On festival stages – the Jazzopen Stuttgart and Wolkenkuckucksheim Festival, for instance – the three musicians show incredible joy of playing, and they can also be seen in a number of interviews in the French cine film Le Son des Autres.

“… prove how much fun jazz can be, and how catchy this style can be even for people who do not consider themselves music experts.” (Ost West Club)
“A small element of serene classical music always resonates in experimental joy of playing, while accentuated side tones break the usual patterns and turn the three musicians into storytellers.” (Weltecho)
