When you talk about Shake Stew, you are talking about one of the most exciting jazz formations in Austria at the moment. Lukas Kranzelbinder and his troupe, consisting of the top class musicians Mario Rom (trumpet), Johnny Schleiermacher (tenor saxophone), Clemens Salesny (alto saxophone), Manuel Mayr (bass), Niki Dolp and Mathias Koch (both drums and percussion) deftly create musical arcs of suspense. The critically acclaimed debut “The Golden Fang”, a memorable debut performance at the International Jazz Festival Saalfelden in 2016, and numerous subsequent concerts abroad (e.g. in Mexico, Morocco, Croatia and Germany) quickly made Lukas Kranzelbinder´s septet an internationally sought-after formation. The Carinthian bandleader and double bassist represents a modern and highly explosive interpretation of jazz that is detached from all stylistic questions. In 2018 Shake Stew performed at jazzahead!  in Bremen and at the int. Jazzfestival Saalfelden. On November 1, 2019, they released their third studio album “Gris Gris” on Traumton Records.
