Three people can't be wrong!" Vote for Vein is groovy, virtuoso and diverse in its design. The music is fun – it's as simple as that. Vein has assured its place in the jazz scene. Highly recommended!

You'd sooner vote for this Swiss jazz trio than for any political party.

One thing's for sure: At almost four minutes, the opener "Appearance and speech",..., is practically a single in its own right. The follow-up album to "vote for vein" will not disappoint listeners. This is an ambitious summary of elements that are highly complex but also improvised.

Despite the formula piano-bass-drums being hackneyed, the trio succeeds in adding its personal touch by wandering through the universe of jazz light-footedly and in style, avoiding the abyss that is today's overly constructed music. It’s yours to (re)discover!
