AVA Trio - AVA Trio

AVA Trio’s successful debut release `Music from an Imaginary Land in 2017 has placed the band on “Best Debut Album” picks for National Public Radio (NPR), All About Jazz and El Intruso International Jazz Critic Pool. The band has toured extensively across Europe and China, taking part in Doek Festival Amsterdam, ZomerJazzFietsTour, Barletta Jazz Festival, OCT-Loft Shenzhen Jazz Festival, XiHu Blooms Music Festival, Shanghai World Music Festival, to name a few. With their second studio album “Digging the Sand”, the group continues to mine the imagination and avoid the cliché-riddled and well-worn paths. Doronzo, Ekincioglu (also part of the trio „Kuhn Fu“) and Basile are erudite and virtuosic guides, navigating through these rich and diverse sonic surroundings. Like the Mediterranean region itself, “Digging the Sand” is an array of ethnic sounds, full of dichotomies; melancholy and intensity, exotic yet grounded in fundamentals of Western and non-Western music. Their destinations need no justification; their music is timeless.

„an extraordinary experience for even the most demanding jazz or progressive lover … the listener is hit with hope.“

his VOICE Magazine (CZ)
„Like the Mediterranean region itself, “Digging the Sand” is an array of ethnic sounds, full of dichotomies; melancholy and intensity, exotic yet grounded in fundamentals of Western and non-Western music. It is immersed in dreams, mystery, and melancholy but with moments of intensity that suggest whirling dervishes.“

All About Jazz 4/5* -(Karl Ackerman)
„Their Saturday night concert has become one of the most entertaining events of the year (very jazz productive) for me…At the end of the concert, everyone stood up dizzy. How could we have prepared for a two-hour Mediterranean cruise? So many tales, so many landscapes, so many emotions? „You have to dance, sir, the music will just come from somewhere,“ said Zorba, the Greek. Well, he’s here. And it exceeded all expectations.“ (Opus Jazz Club concert review 19.02.22)

JazzMa Magazine, HU
„The flowing, modally sprung and atmospherically rich Digging The Sand can only enhance the reputations of three improvisers of refreshingly literate cross-genre experience“

Jazz Journal, UK 4/5*
“Between dream and melancholy, mystery and light, with varying intensity, the members of the trio install an eminently personal aesthetic… Full of finesse and melodic idea, this album awakens the senses and is a real listening pleasure.”

“Whether you call this jazz, Balkan or Middle Eastern music – it’s really all of the above – it’s one of the most delightful albums of recent months.”

New York Music Daily, USA
„Digging The Sand explores a variety of moods, features close interplay between the three players, and is both subtle and colorful. The accessible yet explorative music is well worth hearing several times.“

Scott Yanow, USA
“The fact that AVATrio is a phenomenon in ethno-jazz, in my opinion, is undeniable.”

Jazzquad, Belarus
„…world jazz genre and ancient folk, giving it a slightly avant-garde sense… incantatory Eastern spells throughout, brought by ritualistic rhythms and the intervallic exoticism of specific scales“
