Recorded in a beautiful old farmhouse nestled in the mountains and rolling hills of austria,  amongst christmas tree farms and the distant sounds of wandering cows, these three musicians set out over the course of two days to record their first album together. 


The trio originally formed in 2017 and played their first concert in a recording studio in Vienna (with the audience watching from the control room) as part of the Jazzwerkstatt Wien festival. Bernd Satzinger (bass) and Mark Holub (drums), met when Mark first arrived in Vienna (2012) and always had plans to do something musically together. Satzinger suggested playing with Viola Falb (sax) and the trio was born. After the studio concert, the trio played further concerts around Austria, and when Falb mentioned the opportunity of recording in Schrattenberg the trio jumped at the opportunity and 'A Room For You' was born.


The recording process saw all 3 members bring some concepts for the improvisations as well as Holub bringing a few tunes. The essence of the recording is about 3 musicians who are working to form a group language through their various individualistic approaches. The CD moves between sparse soundscapes, hectic free jazz, and beautiful melodic moments, sometimes all within the same track.  With this first album this new trio will continue to explore the boundaries of where improvised music can take us.
