WOLFGANG MULTHSPIEL TRIO
featuring Eric Harland, drums (USA) and Larry Grenadier, bass (USA)
After having released the highly praised album «Rising Grace» with his quintet on ECM in 2016, followed by sold-out shows in the USA and Europe, Wolfgang Muthspiel will be back with his trio in spring 2018 - a format which allows the Austrian guitarist's unbelievable virtuosity and creativity to shine even more, never loosing focus of serving song and band.
While Eric Harland's addition to this trio is rather new, Larry Grenadier has a long history of playing with Muthspiel. Starting in the early 90s in Gary Burton’s Quartet, when both musicians were based in Boston, Massachusetts, Larry also played on five Muthspiel albums «Drumfree», «Black and Blue», «In and Out», «Driftwood» and last year’s highly praised quintet-album «Rising Grace», as well as being a regular member of Muthspiel's touring-bands. Having this background of a long-term artistic relationship, Grenadier's and Muthspiel's deep understanding of each others playing will be provoked by multi-grammy nominated drummer Eric Harland who is said to be "the drummer of his generation". Harland's groove- oriented but highly sensitive drumming is the perfect addition to this trio and will ensure that Muthspiel's new works for this line-up will be delivered with the brilliance they deserve.
