"Is it New Music, is it Jazz? That's a moot question as soon as these three masters (two of them winners of the renowned SWR Jazz Award) with their experience as instrumentalists, as well as composers, start to play. We hear the soft murmur from the wellspring of music, we share the emergence of sound which unfolds to radiant beauty and disappears in the thicket. While the music stays transparent and light you are subtly abducted into fantastic and imaginative realms. The trio achieves this balance by musical means, and while not a lot of players succeed in doing so, these really do. They really deserve the trip A."-Emmerich Hormann (Zoglau3)
"One of the first major concerts by the new trio .AAA. consisted of a special format requested by the promotoer of "Offene Ohren" in Munich: three solo pieces by each instrumentalist highlighted by a closing trio set. The different musical solo concepts flowed together nicely to form a trio of fine rapport and interplay. For the CD we reversed the sequence of performances as they happened that night, so that you hear the trio first followed by the four solo works in reverse order. While the trio set is basically unedited, the solo pieces had to be revised to meet the time limit of the compact disc."-Andreas Willers
