The 2016 in Bern (CH) formed Trio „Threeamisu" consisting of Max Treutner (ts) Oz Yehiely (b) and Felix Wolf (dr), puts its focus on the interactive playing without harmony instrument. As neither guitar or piano is in the band, a lot of space and freedom is created  which is used  joyfully  to communicate and react to each other. The three friends met first at the state university of Bern and are also playing together in different other groups.

As a sideman

Nolan Quinn Quintet

Der Trompeter Nolan Quinn beschwört auf seinem neuen Album eine zeitlose Vergangenheit und lässt in seinem Schaffen ein ausgeprägtes melodisches Flair erkennen. «Moanin’», «Wailin’», «Cookin’» und jetzt eben «Soothin’». Der Titel ist Programm.

Nolan Quinn Quintet - The Other Duke

Bodo Maier Jazz Quintet

Powerful, swinging, modern jazz that pays homage to the 50s and 60s with original compositions à la Jazz Messengers, Freddie Hubbard, Woody Shaw, etc. The trumpet player Bodo Maier leads his quintet with an intensely swinging vibe he learned from growing up on Louis Armstrong & His All Stars. Using this vibe and his fresh original compositions, he skillfully bridges the gap of jazz tradition to modern day.
In addition to extroverted energetic moments, he also gives insight into the introverted, melancholic world of the trumpet with fascinating ballads.
The music is influenced and enriched by the different nationalities of the musicians that Bodo Maier has gotten to know during his career. His last EP was recorded in London, with musicians from England, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Hong Kong and Australia and one can expect a varied program that takes the listener on an inspiring and uplifting journey.
