trio

LABtrio are three unique musicians with strong personalities, endowed with a fresh and adventurous approach to music. The trio’s acoustic universe conceals an urban jazz that flirts with electronic, underground and hip-hop cultures. Their music is refreshing and constantly evolving. Besides their own compositions, they alternate with jazz standards with a personal twist.

“For Nature City, our latest album, we explored the world of chamber music, with a lot of elaborated compositions and extensive improvisations. With Nature City, we are figuring out who we became after 10 years of LABtrio. Troughout the years, we built a varied repertoire and a uniqueness we want to stress with our new album. The challenge is to expand and dig in our identity and our story as a trio, aswell as to breathe new life into it.” LABtrio

 

”LABtrio is a strong unit on the firm and vivid Belgian scene.

The LABtrio is an astonishing and happy case of musical affinity and kinship. In their development these three musicians have kept their primal playfulness. What sometimes seems a kind of hide and seek game is actually steered by strong compositional stepping-stones that allow to move along surprising and sophisticated passages, expansions, contractions and condensations. What the trio does, could also be considered as a sophisticated collage technique without perceivable stitches and bulges.”  (Henning Bolte – All About Jazz)
