About the album

The Belgian saxophone trio Mamutrio was founded under the impulse of the young, talented drummer Jesse Dockx. With his former teachers and mentors, bassist Piet Verbist and saxophonist Lieven Cambré, the trio has now performed dozens of concerts around Belgium and presents here its debut recording. Bringing an active performance style with lots of interaction, Mamutrio performs a repertoire that contains mostly originals from the band members, expressing all kinds of moods and influences. Contemporary jazz with a variety of approaches, from traditional to playful and open, focusing on harmony and melodic interplay in a rhythmic context, challenging and dynamic.
Das belgische Saxophon-Trio Mamutrio wurde auf Initiative des jungen und talentierten Schlagzeugers Jesse Dockx gegründet. Mit seinen ehemaligen Lehrern und Mentoren, dem Bassisten Piet Verbist und dem Saxophonisten Lieven Cambré hat das Trio mittlerweile Dutzende von Konzerten in Belgien gespielt und präsentiert hier sein Debüt-Album. Mamutrio präsentiert einen aktiven Performance-Stil mit viel Interaktion. Das Repertoire sind zumeist Originale der Bandmitglieder. Zeitgenössischer Jazz mit einer Vielzahl von Ansätzen, traditionell bis verspielt und offen, konzentriert auf Harmonie und melodisches Zusammenspiel im rhythmischen Kontext, anspruchsvoll und dynamisch.
