The Belgian saxophone trio Mamutrio was founded under the impulse of the young, talented drummer Jesse Dockx. With his former teachers and mentors, bassist Piet Verbist and saxophonist Lieven Cambré, the trio has now performed dozens of concerts around Belgium and presents here its debut recording. Bringing an active performance style with lots of interaction, Mamutrio performs a repertoire that contains mostly originals from the band members, expressing all kinds of moods and influences. Contemporary jazz with a variety of approaches, from traditional to playful and open, focusing on harmony and melodic interplay in a rhythmic context, challenging and dynamic.

I love jazz because it's sophisticated, international, atmospheric yet free, cool and warm.
I was first exposed to jazz through the sultry voice and flawless swing of my mother.
I met Mark Murphy, David Linx, Kurt Elling, and Youn Sun Nah.
The best show I ever attended was Youn Sun Nah in Paris.
The first jazz record I bought was Native Dancer by Wayne Shorter and Milton Nascimento
My advice to new listeners: open your mind and your ears, forget about structure, feel the textures.
Go see live music and keep buying CDs!
