Treppenwitz is a project dedicated to improvisation and the exploration of sounds within open structures. The vision of the band is of a collective, organic approach to improvised performance, where each member is a leader, and can shape the direction of the music as such. 

Compositions are all contributed by the members, and are used as a springboard for exploration of sounds, textures, harmony and rhythm. This performance is part of their Feb/March 2018 UK tour to promote their new record, Short+Long Ditties, which was released on New Jazz Records.

"Intense and fearless...the strong musical relationship between these three leading young jazz musicians allows them to delve deep into improvisation, with beautiful original melodies and fascinating rhythmic structures..." Ilkley Jazz Festival

“In something of a crowded market, the young piano trio Treppenwitz is making a fresh new case for the medium, with an ensemble sound and historical awareness that both builds upon and ignores what has come before. Their performance at mjf 2017 captivated the audience with its reflective miniatures and extended investigations into sound, not afraid of lyrical melodies - nor of avoiding them. It’s a band that will surely blossom over the coming years.” – Steve Mead, Manchester Jazz Festival
