This programme was created on a command by Austrian radio ORF for their festival Glatt und Verkehrt and should have been played as a Premiere in July 2020.
Recorded at Bauer Studio during a live concert, it was released as a Vinyl Collector by Neuklang and played in several clubs and festivals in Europe.
The music is inspired by folk music from the Atlantic coast with original arrangements and this peculiar sound of the piano, the accordion and the flugelhorn together.
"Immersive, delicate and moving, the opus marvelously expresses the understanding of the 3 men who nevertheless come from diverse musical backgrounds." Christophe Hilali / Hiko's Chronicles
"The result is brilliant. Osmosis, symbiosis, telepathy, take your pick (...) Everything in this record is all about luminous fluidity and intelligence." Yves Dorison / Culture Jazz
