Gerhard Ornig Trio – Freifeld

Itunes

The Trio of Austrian Trumpet player and composer Gerhard Ornig is a creative, flourishing, energetic, unique collaboration of musicians from 2 continents and 3 different cultures and countries. Gerhard  is sharing the stage with Matt Adomeit (USA) on Bass and Attila Gyárfás (HUN) on Drums. A specific  description of the music of the trio may be difficult to put into words, but Michael Ternai (MICA ‐  music austria) described the debut (“First Flow”) in an appealingly beautiful and interesting way:

In German:
Jazz, der nicht an seinen eigenen Grenzen Halt macht, sondern auf aufregende und vor allem ungemein abwechslungsreiche Weise die Nähe auch zu anderen Genres sucht – genau ein solchen  bekommt man auf „First Flow“ (Freifeld Tonträger), dem Debüt des GERHARD ORNIG TRIOS, geboten.  Drei Instrumentalisten unterschiedlichen Backgrounds, die sich trotz ihrer Verschiedenheit  eines teilen – den Willen, neue musikalische Wege zu erkunden. Der Jazz, den das Trio rund um den  österreichischen Trompeter und Komponisten Gerhard Ornig auf seinem Album „First Flow“  verwirklicht, ist einer der sehr traditionsfernen und erfrischend unkonventionellen Note. Was der  Bandleader aus der Steiermark und seine beiden Mitstreiter, der Amerikaner Matt Adomeit am Bass  und der Ungar Attila Gyárfás am Schlagzeug, zu ihrem Programm machen, ist das offene und von  allen Zwängen losgelöste Zueinanderführen des vermeintlich Gegensätzlichen. Die drei Protagonisten  jonglieren geradezu mit den verschiedenen Stilen und Spielarten, sie fassen sie ideenreich zu etwas  musikalisch Ureigenem zusammen, das zwar am Regelwerk des Jazz angelehnt ist, aber dennoch  dessen definierte Grenzen mit einem großen Satz überschreitet. 

English Translation:

Jazz, which does not stop at its own borders, but seeks proximity to other genres in an exciting and, above all, very varied way ‐ exactly this is what you get offered on “First Flow”, the debut of the  GERHARD ORNIG TRIO.  Three instrumentalists of different backgrounds who, despite their differences, share a common will  to explore new musical paths. The jazz that the trio around the Austrian trumpeter and composer  Gerhard Ornig realizes on his album “First Flow” is one of the very traditional and refreshingly  unconventional notes. What makes the bandleader from Styria (State in Austria) and his two  comrades, the American Matt Adomeit on the bass and the Hungarian Attila Gyárfás on drums, to  their program, is the openness and separation from all its constraints to each other leading, the  supposed contradictory. The three protagonists juggle with the different styles and varieties, they  sum up imaginatively to something musically original, which is indeed based on the set of rules of  jazz, but still exceeds its defined limits with a large sentence.
