The jazz pianist, Martin Listabarth, tells his personal stories with the piano, as one. Musically rooted in jazz, but also unafraid of influences from classical music, he follows his individual musical path. On his debut album "Short Stories," he devoted himself to the subject of storytelling: Why do some narratives work particularly well? How is tension built up and released? What makes for interesting characters? On his current album "Dedicated", he‘s collected stories from a wide variety of women and men whose passion for a particular field especially fascinates him. In doing so, he picked out certain aspects of the lives and work of these people, and put them into musical form.
This trio is a unique combination, already from its instrumentation alone. Catchy tunes and sophisticated melodies packed into multi-layered, complex concept compositions, accompanied by varied improvisations, are the trademark of the three musicians. They create a variant of jazz that draws on influences from chamber music, contemporary music, ethno-funk and orchestral soundscapes. It is no coincidence that accordion greats such as Maria Kalaniemi, Guy Klucevsek, Otto Lechner and Bratko Bibič are a constant point of reference in the trio's work. In 2021 the trio celebrated its 10th anniversary. The first decade can be described as one of uncompromising experimentation - both behind the scenes and on stage. There is nothing to suggest that the second decade will bring anything less.
