Tze Trio presents their unique take on jazz standards which combines a cinematic, lyrical approach with exhilarating bebop improvisations, inspired by European jazz. Inner Universe refers to the layers of textures, rhythms, melodies that are often created within the music beneath the main theme in the course of the music conversation/interplay/ collective improvisation. They ultimately create a new world built on an existing one, making each piece familiar, yet a unique world of sound, thoughts and emotions. The trio will also perform some of Tze's original works.
