k3 is back on track!

… vigorous as usual, with an additional, sound-expanding instrumentation and new compositions! 

Herbert Könighofer (sax, flutes, doublebass-clarinet, bass), Robert Kainar (drums, perc., electronics)
Klaus Kircher (double-bass, e-bass, guit.) surprise with each sound. Having referred to as the “enfants terribles of the Austrian Jazz scene” in the past, they walk on a on a tightrope between pop and free jazz.
Their genre-busting style oscillates between acoustically and electronically generated beats ‘n’ sounds. The trio boldly defies conventions and creates a space for artistic freedom. In doing so, they play Jazz in its original meaning: crossing borders, pushing boundaries… far out! – keeping aloof from clichés and mainstream, leaving the beaten track of academic, inane high-speed Jazz. Improvisation, spontaneity and humour are the main ingredients of the soup they stir up in their performances.
