"A supergroup" is what the German music magazine Jazzthetik callsPunkt. Vrt. Plastik. Kaja Draksler, Petter Eldh and Christian Lillingermake up this trio - "Two musicians and one musician who are amongthe most exciting and active that the European avant-garde has tooffer. " And Die Zeit writes: "They reinterpret an entire genre at once:the good old piano trio. " The trio convinces with a highly individualsound and a rarely heard clarity and precision, even where there isfree improvisation and where rhythm, melody and metrics dissolve. Now, a year after their celebrated album Somit, they present animpressive live statement that takes up the material from their eponymousfirst album and Somit and impressively demonstrates the liverealizations of studio ideas. "It is a stunning reminder that whateverelse it can be, music is a fundamentally communicative enterprise. Itis our great fortune that the microphones were up on this night so thatPunkt. Vrt. Plastik can again tell us what they said", writes AlexanderHawkins in the liner notes.
