David Helbock Trio

David Helbock - Piano

Reinhold Schmölzer - Drums

The CD "Into the Mystic" will be released End of August 2016 on ACT Music

 

"...The David Helbock Trio is full of tricks...But this isn´t really a gimmicky show. In fact, when Helbock shifts from frantic virtuosity to lyrical expansiveness the true mettle of his technique and musicality can be seen..."

David Washington - InDaily Australia

The current trio of the pianist, who was awarded austrian „Outstanding Artist Award“ shows unconventional and humorous facets: 

Raphael Preuschl is not plucking a double bass, but a bass ukulele. Reinhold Schmölzer plays his drums accordingly dynamical, sometimes almost eruptive. In lyrical passages highly sensitive, in fast moments with pronounced energy and heavy beats.

The new program, which will be presented today and will be released in the fall as a CD on one of the most renowned Jazzlabels - ACT Music - dives into a mystic world.

David Helbock was inspired to write compositions by stories of different cultures and their mythology. In this way some very driving pieces, along with the spirit of our time but also many quiet, mystical moments, emerged

 

„...David Helbock is equally capable of negotiating elaborate figures at speed, holding down a groove and whacking some dissonance out of his instrument. He can play a fast calypso, hint at gospel, swing some Schönberg, get lush enough for cocktail hour and peck out dance rhythms with a prepared instrument. And his rhythm section is with him every step of the way, amping up the velocity and cramming in a few extra notes and flourishes whenever they get the chance...“
