The band, as an international formation, was established in 2014 at Hessen Musikfrauenwoche, where the three women first played together at a teacher’s concert. Thrilled by their inspiring interplay as well by their fine blend of contemporary original acoustic jazz tunes, the trio since then continues to evolve and expand its material.
Based on Gina Schwarz’ warm, rapturous sound and groovy basslines, Stephanie Wagner’s modern and spiry melody playing and Esther Bächlin’s unbounded creative drive, the trio spins their suite-like compositions and floating improvisations in a very harmonious yet energetic way.
By adding drums and saxophone, the quintet explores the full potential of their multifaceted sound and dynamic range, full of inspiration, catching moments and unectpected twists and turns!
