The Marie Kruttli Trio inspires, vivid, fresh, brilliant and audacious. Jazz needs trios like this says a Jazz critic about their first album. The young pianist creates with a sophisticated and personal language. a deep rhythmical and harmonical research.Thanks to the interpretation of the trio, full of lightness and groove, this music speaks to the body and the heart. With a mature sound, a special esthetic and a bewitching virtuosity, the three musicians deliver a highly pertinent music. No hipster minimalism, no irony but clear and powerful ideas. Kruttli’s playing impresses at every level, delivering with defined ease, complex rhythms, colourful harmonics and overlapping tones. She navigates her band through a mysterious, soulful musical landscape.
