Robert Rook (1966) is a phenomenon on the piano. Modern, versatile and rhythmically very sharp, he has the tools to make each improvisation a real adventure. Being present at a live concert makes you experience the force of this brilliant and genuine piano player, all the way from a slow very tense ballad to aggressive and exciting up tempo pieces (in fact more often both ambiences meet in the same song).

Robert chose Thomas Andersen and Dick Verbeeck as the perfect counterforce to his dynamic approach. They know just when and how to follow him in his exploration of rhythm and harmony or at other times provide him with subtle, yet hard-swinging counterpoint.

The trio moves as one organic whole. Jazz tradition is not abandoned or forgotten, and still completely new ways are entered.
