Current press quotes "VOTE FOR VEIN"

PresseThe Album “VOTE for VEIN” opens with a track that is solid, bizarre, feisty and has a frenetic sense humour – so practically standard for VEIN…“Appearance and Speech” is one of the most exciting, dense and entertaining pieces of contemporary jazz literature. You will want to hear it over and over again…The belter “No We Can’t – Vote for Us Anyway!” is the ideal theme tune to the end of a sensually humorous, almost theatrical set. Piano trio jazz doesn’t get more surprising and unconventional than this – Vote for Vein!
– Hans-Jürgen Schaal, Fidelity Magazin 1.2014

PresseVEIN are driving tradition forward with great curiosity, a passion for anything different, highest improvisational finesse and superb interplay. Their government participation would be more than welcome.
- Tobias Böcker, Jazz Zeitung 11.2013

PresseThere’s no question about it, I have fallen for this music...
– Wolfgang Giese, Rocktimes 11.2013

Presse…this magnificent trio is innovative without turning its back on various traditional influences. VEIN leads us to a jazzy future that is beguiling, harmonious, imaginative and rich. Their style, programme and musical quality is so appealing that last year they played eleven countries on three continents last year. So without hesitation: VOTE for VEIN!
– Entreprises Magazine, 12.2013

PresseVEIN – An infernal trio. The piano trio from Basel are no longer newcomers and, it must be said, are among the best of what their genre has to offer today… Genuine modernity that rests upon a solid tradition is what the accomplished and superbly made album “VOTE for VEIN” has to offer.
– La république du jazz, 11.2013
