About the album

Meeting musicians as talented as they’re young is always a treat, even when regularly wandering in concert venues. Their ‘musical godmother’ Joëlle Léandre had prepared us though: "Three friends, three young musicians, all of them string players - aren't we all one great family? And so much music, emotion and rigour in them already. The writing displays great sophistication and a rare maturity ; there is a chamber-like quality to the playing, with mutual listening at the highest level ; the duets, solo interludes and improvisations are simple, yet daring ; the phrasing and "dancing" exhilarating, intense and swift ; the music is lyrical, profound, adventurous - as dicey as life. Listen to them - they are the genuine article!"

Drei Saiteninstrumente, die im Jazz eher selten zum Trio geformt werden: Violine, Cello und (E-)Gitarre. Dass dies aber zu spannendem Hörerlebnis komponiert werden kann, belegt der Ausruf einer der besten Bassistinnen Europas, Joelle Léandre: "Ein großartiger Start!". Nicht nur technisch auf höchstem Niveau, sondern auch musikalisch anspruchsvoll und umgehend in Bann ziehend. Beim Hören wird sofort klar: diese Band möchte man gerne auch live sehen.
