Pablo Held Trio feat. Nelson Veras

Over the past 15 years, the Pablo Held Trio has earned a reputation as one of the most exciting, because most daring, piano trios on at least the European scene. In order not to get caught up in routines, the three musicians developed a fine strategy for expeditions into the surprising: The renunciation of preparatory arrangements or a set list structuring the concert, trusting in a constantly growing repertoire of about 40 permanently available compositions as starting and playing material for "free" improvisations. Each concert is therefore unique. Since 2006, the trio has played countless concerts, collected important prizes and awards, recorded nine successful albums for the Pirouet label and then switched to the British noble indie jazz label Edition Records in 2018. With the program of the corresponding album "Investigations", the trio made a guest appearance at Enjoy Jazz in Ludwigshafen in the fall of 2018. As if to give the routine another leg up, the trio has invited guests such as John Scofield, Ralph Towner, Chris Potter or - most recently - the Brazilian guitarist Nelson Veras every now and then for inspiration or to explore other possibilities of instrumentation. A first impression of the musical synergy effects of this collaboration is given by the album "Ascent", which will be released in spring 2020, but here too, of course, "what counts is on the pitch". In this case on the stage of the "Ella & Louis", where you can marvel at what reads on the site of Edition Records: "focus on deep listenig and non-ego-driven communication".
