sample the album:
"Ten years ago Michel Wintsch (piano, synthesizer), Christian Weber (bass) and Christian Wolfarth (drums) met - 3 musicians who have not only shaped the European scene of improvisation in the most different formations but who also catch an ear with the maybe most relevant aspect in music whatsoever: SOUND.
Wintsch, Weber and Wolfarth make music with a breathtaking mental vigor. The long time working band has left all clichées far behind making you forget that in fact they are a piano trio. Where in their early years the band has stretched the boundaries of a piano trio they manage today to bring them down altogether."-Monotype
