Playlist Information

A playlist and listen-again audio are available for 1 month by clicking the play button above after the broadcast.

Captured live at the 2017 Melbourne International Jazz Fest, Swiss outfit MaxMantis band together as a trio of jazz 'super heroes.' The trio is made up of pianist Lukas Gernet, drummer Samuel Buttiker and bassist Rafael Jerjen (who grew up in Canberra), and their music tells the story of three heros who mix with so-called villans and allies. We caught the act at the 2017 Melbourne International Jazz Festival - and we'll hear their set in full on this episode.

This was a fascinating, quirky, progressive piano trio excursion. Impressionistic and expressionistic!
Enjoyably refreshing and uplifting.
Thanks ABC Jazz.
