Runner-Up at "Jazz Award Munich"

Didn't work out this time. Nonetheless we had a great time and congratulate our Cologne-based colleagues who won!

A foundry, a factory. Industrial plants, focussed on processing their products in alembics with next to no margins for error. Always keeping one goal in sight: all components resemble each other down to their molecular level and are being led to a single purposed after being sold.


The goal of the Cologne-based trio differs greatly from that of the common foundry. It is about diversity, aesthetics and their own roots. In their time of playing, the group grew into a unit. At all times their compositions mirror the authentic sound of JAF Instead of forcing every workpiece into a cast and thereby burdening them with tight restrictions, they choose the freedom of interaction, microtonal structures and playful grooves. A basic consideration for melody leads their way, even though they don’t stop at rustic sounds and tunes.
