Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"AMP Stringency "is the latest project of the twins brothers Michael and Florian Arbenz, the congenial connection of a jazz piano trio with a string quartet, the Arbenz brothers are always good for surprises , Or write here as this ART of new jazz music. That these innovators do not storm the charts from today to tomorrow, is not surprising. This has always been the case with good and new music. But the fact that they belong to the very first league and play there is also clear. The recording contains 6 basic pieces of 4 different composers of New Music. So there is not only very intense music, but also very banally said "very much" music."-Meta
