"Alex Machacek's music starts where other music ends" that’s what John McLaughlin said about Machacek’s US debut album „[sic]“, where besides Terry Bozzio you can hear FAT for the first time as well, even though it wasn’t that clear to FAT ye

FAT, short for Fabulous Austrian Trio, came together in 2004 just before bandleader, Alex Machacek - Europe’s „Guitar Newcomer 98“ - relocated from Vienna, Austria to Los Angeles.

"Clearly, the chemistry between the three musicians is something that inspires Machacek to some of his finest playing yet, as just one listen to "FAT" reveals".

John Kelman/AllAboutJazz

"…with FAT it became clear that Machacek had found the perfect group for his appealing complex compositional constructs that, predicated on the guitarists's keen attention to sound, form and detail, also provide no shortage of space for freewheeling, dazzling improvisational élan and the trio's increasingly empathic interaction…."

#awsome review by John Kelman


"Maybe it's the inevitable wisdom of age, with Machacek now in his early 40s, but as impressive as "Living the Dream" is, and as much as it fits comfortably in his overall discography, it's the album where, despite its many twists and turns, harmonic, melodic and rhythmic surprises, and the evolving chemistry of FAT, it's also the album where all three musicians come together with a sense of nothing left to prove. And it's that very comfort level with each other, and that very feeling of maturity that makes "Living the Dream" an even better record than the superb "FAT"...and one of the very best in Machacek's growing discography."

John Kelman/AllAboutJazz

“So far beyond good it's not about good anymore…”

Wayne Krantz

"...a tremendously exciting new record and a wonderful new trio..."

TRIMOLON Jazzscapes

Stefan Frommelt (LIE) - piano

Florian King (D) - bass

Marvin Studer (LIE)- drums

Komponierte und improvisierte Landschaften breiten sich vor dem Zuhörer aus, wenn er TRIMOLON erlebt. Intensives interaktives Zusammenspiel, innerer Zusammenhalt und große gegenseitige Wertschätzung der drei Musiker prägt das Konzept und Spiel von TRIMOLON. Stets offen doch gleichzeitig verbindlich der Komposition verpflichtet (und sei sie im Moment kreiert) schafft TRIMOLON Brücken zwischen Zuhörer und Musiker. Zartheit darf sein, Energie wie bei einer Rockband darf sein, Schönheit darf sein - Emotion darf sein - Abenteuer darf sein. TRIMOLON’s Jazzscapes berühren.
