electrio = crossover jazz from the Ruhr region
Electrio, since many years an established brand in the Jazz Scene of the German Metropolitan area Ruhrgebiet, is well known for its funky grooves and well-structured compositions combined with a free concept of improvisations without any restrictions on differentiation and harmony.
The band has been founded as a trio already in 2003 but has tested over the last years multiple different set-ups up to a Sextett including a singer. Electrio has launched its first CD in 2014 in a Quintett set-up with trumpet. The main driver of the band remains unchanged: excellent arranged compositions, accompanied by some extraordinary interpretations of all time classics from Pat Metheny, E.S.T., Steely Dan and Billy Cobham.
Since the beginning of 2019 electrio are five extraordinary voices, which make every performance a unique experience by adopting and extending impulses of each individual musician and the creation of something new: dynamic, impulsive, surprising and always grooving.
