The place to be - listen to our latest tracks and watch our stunning music videos!
Leaving the trio tradition behind for a moment, nine fantastic musicians from the Viennese Jazz and classical scene are being featured as part of a now twelve piece ensemble exploring the sonic possibilities of Jazz chamber music. Seven completely new compositions by Florian Reider, Silas Isenmann and Lukas Florian testify to the ensemble's flexibility. The range of influences extends from folklore to traditional Jazz to contemporary free-tonal music and free improvisation.

Debut album 'Crux'
In their debut album 'Crux' Florian Reider, Lukas Florian and Silas Isenmann present a cross-section of their musical work. However, the CD is not a potpourri, not an indiscriminate accumulation of styles. Due to their own cultural background, each musician possesses an unmistakable signature that flows into the compositions and interpretations. Based on this eclectic way of working, in combination with the independent artistic characters of the band, a diverse body of sound is created, which - consciously making use of tradition - aims to establish a progressive sonority and thus creates a manifold range of expressive possibilities.
'Crux' - meaning 'cross' on the one hand - is meant to represent the intersection of musical influences and ideas, and on the other hand act as a synonym for the difficulty of a debut CD. For all ensembles, a debut release represents a certain key point, i.e. a crux in their career, since the success of the recording contributes to the general success of the ensemble in no small measure.
Live sessions Vol.1
Full Crimp Live Sessions Vol.1 contains four live tracks from recordings at the Bösendorfer Salon in the Musikverein in Vienna and at the music and arts private university Vienna. Some of those tunes are also to be found on Youtube with live music videos and some have been professionally rerecorded for our upcoming debut album 'Crux', that is going to be out in February 2023!
