Get ready for one of Europes most exciting ensembles.
From Basel comes a trio you never have experienced before. Get ready for a thrilling jazz consert at The Northern Lights Festival.
One of Europe’s most exciting ensembles– John Fordham, The Guardian.
Over the past decade the Basel-based VEIN Trio has established an enviable reputation among jazz audiences for both stylistic diversity and technical accomplishment, blending the complexity of European classical chamber music with the thrills and energy of jazz improvisation at its most sophisticated.
All three players are classically trained, and musical leadership is equally shared, creating a fluid, cosmopolitan sound.
The group has released an album nearly every year since its formation and gained recognition for long-term collaborations with star veteran soloists including trombonist Glenn Ferris and saxophonists Greg Osby, Dave Liebman and Andy Sheppard. VEIN’s music is composed by all three members of the trio.
The band is Florian Arbenz, Thomas Läns og Michael Arbenz.
