Peter Herborn - The forgotten chords: Music for Question Quartet

Mia Thought & Something Happened

A trip-hop / drum‘n bass project in the style of English bands like Portishead, Lamb and Moloko. An international line-up with an Austrian (now NYC based) singer, Belgium keyboarder and German drummer. Good times... 


Das Modern Jazz Trio musiziert mit einer bewussten Hinwendung zu Monk'scher Ästhetik. Dies spiegelt auch das Repertoire der Band mit neben eigenen Kompositionen selten gespielten Stücken von Kenny Baron, Steve Coleman und Thelonious Monk wider. Im Vordergrund steht ein dynamisches Spiel, das eine klanglich abwechslungsreiche Mischung aus solidem swingendem Jazz-Feeling und einer experimentierfreudigen Haltung bietet. Über ein dichtes Zusammenspiel und sensible Spielhaltung formulieren die drei Musiker eine Synthese aus Tradition und Moderne. Das konzertante Auftreten des Trios beruht auf dem Prinzip der Gleichberechtigung; keines der Instrumente dominiert den Sound der Formation.

  • Jonar Röser: Alt-Saxophon
  • Dominic Brosowski: Schlagzeug
