Jazztrio playing with a rock 'n roll attitude
free improvisation, jazz, experimental
Winner Jong Jazztalent 2017 - Gent Jazz Festival
The young jazz trio Steiger proves the potency Belgium has when it comes to delivering interesting progressive jazz music. Their first full album (‘And Above All,’- el NEGOCITO Records, 2017) contains elements of jazz, experimental music, avant-garde and electronics.
The music is playful and rough at the same time. In their experiment and improvisations, they search for a musical balance between acoustic and electronical elements.
Three musicians with a strong personal musical identity dive into a shared universe where they communicate with one another through the use of original compostions and free improvisation. Their versatile influences, together with their common background in jazz music, form the unique sound of this band.
Therefore Steiger adds up to the list of interesting and progressive jazz bands that shape the Belgian jazzscene of today.
