Superbly modernistic piano trio

US/German pianist Benny Lackner brings his trio on a whirlwind Asia Tour. Lackner has a unique compositional voice and arranging style which blends jazz, electronica and acoustic sounds into a modernistic feel.

"The Trio’s raw creative energy and brute force is directed by Lackner's musical sophistication and imposing technical facility” Thomas Conrad, Jazztimes

Lackner, who studied under the direction of Charlie Haden and mentor, Brad Mehldau has a reputation for interesting re-interpretations of jazz and modern songs - from the electronics-tinged version of Charles Mingus’s “Moanin’”, to Bowie, Prince’s “Sign Of The Times”, and the critically acclaimed ‘Sugar Man’.

The Trio was founded in New York City in 2002 and they have shared the stage with John Scofield at the Traumzeit Jazz Festival, headlined at jazz clubs such as the Blue Note, Joe’s Pub and Smalls in NYC, played to packed houses at the Sunset in Paris, the Augsburger Jazzsommer, and toured the U.S.A., Germany, France, South Africa, Austria, Turkey, Spain, Greece, Portugal and Eastern Europe.
