Walter Fischbacher Trio
Phishbacher are seductive. They are riveting. They grab you by the hand, beckon and say,‘Let me take you on a journey to the end of the world and back.’ Their music is a melodic, dramatic concoction grounded in the deep tradition of American jazz without being limited by it. When Phishbacher step onstage, they risk everything. Their concerts are nothing less than a reckless high wire act of off the charts technical perfection that never loses sight of its single goal: to mesmerize the audience, and, for a few hours, have them take flight and dive into an enchanting soundscape far beyond the ordinary. Three musicians – three countries (US, DE, CZ), and as many musical backgrounds – a great basis for coloring originals and hit songs equally in the trio’s unique hue of a sound. U2, Radiohead, Coldplay, The Beatles, Genesis, Michael Jackson, Black Eyed Peas and Katy Perry receive top-notch Phishbacher treatment. Walter Fischbacher, Jan Kořínek and Ulf Stricker are masters at catapulting a piece of music into the stratosphere while simultaneously driving their rhythmic roots deep into the bedrock. Not a single song goes off the rail. Each piece is bursting with playfulness and just enough discipline to see the band slide along the edge of the abyss. It is this flirt with the desaster, this controlled madness that enlivens simple melodies and lifts Phishbacher above the masses. Phishbacher – an electrifying trio that raises jazz to cult status…
