Description

Trio Elf is one of the internationally most acclaimed German jazz groups. It's the only band from Germany that recently received a whole page in the American Downbeat, the most famous Jazz magazine in the world. "Trio Elf continues its signature exploration of the best of what's out there in the world of sound" Downbeat

Trio Elf has truly re-invented the classic jazz piano trio in recent years by using grooves and sounds of contemporary club styles as a kickoff for improvisation. Their warm acoustic sound is augmented by the creative use of electronics.

Trio Elf's musical ease stems from melodies of an almost hymnic quality, dazzling rhythms und surprising dynamic shifts arising from a collective breathing of three equal voices. Critics both in Europe and Japan have hailed their inspired interplay.

Elf's third album "Elfland" (enja) effectively features Brazilian vocal legend Milton Nascimento as a special highlight.

"Trio Elf is part of a new German jazz generation. They are unearthing what once has made jazz so great: Risk, new sounds and bursts of energy" Hamburger Abendblatt Gerwin Eisenhauer's virtuoso drumming sounds like a drum machine come alive. He freely improvises with drum'n'bass or hip-hop grooves like any legend of jazz drumming would do with the swing rhythm.

Walter Lang is one of Europe's most prestigious pianists and a celebrated star in Japan. His lyrically expressive melodies and energetic chords testify to his enormous musical versatility and creative spark. Peter Cudek is internationally acclaimed for his unique virtuoso style on the acoustic bass. He effortlessly and instantly shifts from melodious counterpoint to deep synth-like grooves in the low register.
