Only considering its instrumentation – two accordions, one saxophone – trio akk:zent is a unique combination. Packing catchy tunes and sophisticated melodies into complex concept compositions, accompanied by experimental improvisations, is the rigid-anarchistic concept of the three musicians. They create a variant of jazz that combines influences from chamber music, contemporary music, ethno-funk and orchestral sound structures. Non-dogmatic Accordion masters such as Maria Kalaniemi (FIN), Guy Klucevsek (USA), Otto Lechner (AUT) and Bratko Bibič (SLO) are a fixed point of reference in the trio’s work.
In 2021 the trio celebrated its 10th anniversary. The first decade can be described as one of uncompromising experimentation, both on and off stage. One should not expect that the second decade will be one of mature staidness.
