This Trio blasts itself and the audience with a breathtaking pace which is a real joy to witness. The trio explores every possible aspect of the interplay, sometimes chamber-musical delicate and transparent, sometimes explosively bold and dense, always charged with tension until the last note and the last break. The complexity and originality of Niescier's compositions is unmissable, the organic structure leads the listener into various musical worlds, which makes the trio's performance so incredibly captivating. With absolute mastery, the three transport a captivating intensity through their music and sound.

As a cellist and composer, Tomeka Reid (Chicago) is one of the most driving artistic forces on the American jazz scene. She works with Roscoe Mitchell, Craig Taborn, Myra Melford, Anthony Braxton and Mary Halvorson.

Savannah Harris (NYC) is one of "New York's finest players". As an extremely versatile musician, she works across all genre barriers a.o. with Geri Allen, Peter Evans, Christian McBride, Jason Moran, Kenny Barron or the Hip Hop Collective Standing in The Corner.

Angelika Niescier doesn't really need to be introduced to the audience here. The "great European saxophonist" (BZ) is one of the musicians who further develop German jazz and bring it to an international level. The multiple award winner is a "breathtakingly spirited and virtuoso" (BR Klassik) musician and plays with Joachim Kühn, Tyshawn Sorey, Nasheet Waits, Jim Black, Sylvie Courvoisier, Ernie Watts, Soweto Kinch, Alexander Hawkins, Mariá Portugal, among others.
