Jürgen Seefelder has emerged as one of the most creative stylists on the European scene. He has worked with The Vienna Art Orchestra, Dusko Goykovich, Karl Ratzer, Keith Copeland, Lew Soloff a.o. He is a professor at the School for Music and Art in Mannheim.Seefelder plays with a controlled fire intimating a depth of passion tempered by a concise approach, which strives to articulate those sensations that burn deep within.Bassist Thomas Stabenow has long been one of the premier bassists on the European scene, having worked and/or recorded with the likes of Johnny Griffin, Charlie Rouse, Clifford Jordan, Lee Konitz, Billy Cobham, Tom Harrell, Albert Mangelsdorff. Drummer Guido May is a potent, forceful drummer, whose playing is characterized by his subtle use of dynamics, hard driving swing, and sensitive, supportive ensemble playing. Despite his young age he has already worked with Bob Berg, Pee Wee Ellis, Diana Krall, Mose Allison, Klaus Doldinger. The music played by these three leads the listener down a path with pleasures and surprises at every twist and turn. There is an implied harmonic depth and density of colors in their playing that belies the fact that this is a trio without without a piano. The music of Straighthorn is what jazz is all about – the joy of playing together, creating together, taking chances, extending and resolving feelings and ideas; it all makes for exciting, challenging listening.
