CAIUS CAT TRIO
Caius Cat Trio
Young Swedish-Spanish-Swiss jazz trio Caius Cat Trio launch their self-titled debut album, packed with their unique, imaginative music, which tends to let traditions of jazz break new ground. Oskar Forsberg is the inspired tenor saxophonist from Sweden, schooled in the playing of Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane, who challenges his roots in experiments with novel harmonic and improvisational soundscapes. Spanish bass player Pedro Martinez Maestre, located in Switzerland, secures the groove and provides this airy trio with the requisite harmonic energy usually called for by the piano or guitar. Finally, Swiss drummer Raphael Nick showcases his versatility as an expressive and intuitive musician, setting the framework for the exciting sound of the trio. As a special treat, Caius Cat Trio introduces the skillful Swedish jazz pianist Gunnar Åkerhielm on a couple of tracks. This group presents some exhilirating music, constantly with one foot in the past, and the other in the future.
