Since its formation in 2010, the Melt Trio has become one of the world's most innovative guitar trios in contemporary jazz. And way beyond. Stylistically speaking: If you like Tortoise, Khruangbin, but also Philip Catherine, Bad Plus or Marc Ribot, you can already look forward to one of the outstanding albums in November of this crisis-ridden year.

On their countless concerts and tours all over the world, the three Berliners have refined their special style more and more and show an even stronger will to create in details. Their combination of acoustic and electronic sounds seems more subtle and at the same time more powerful than ever, specific influences from jazz and classical modernism to post- and prog rock can at best be made out dimly, because the music simply sounds like Melt Trio. It is and remains a guitar trio that does without any comparison. "Melt is neither Nirvana on jazz, nor Bill Frisell Trio in rock, nor Massacre in ambient. Melt is Melt, unique, individual, gripping and moving," it was once said elsewhere.

“… an ongoing variation on the guitar trio involving a highly personalized mixture of jazz, rock and atmospherics.” DownBeat Magazin“

"More exciting and adventurous music than what can now be heard on the new album "Hymnolia" has not been heard in the far reaches of guitar jazz for a long time." Jazzpodium

"The Melt Trio plays and writes music that is so full of life that you can't get enough of it" Jazzpodium

"This guitar trio, which is inadequately described by the terms post-rock or Bill Frisell 2.0, might be one of the most amazing within the current jazz scene." Rondo

"5 out of 5 stars!" Jazz'n More

"Audiophile highlight of the month!" Stereo/ MUSIC ***** KLANG*****

"The highlight then, the performance of the Melt Trio, whose debut album "Melt" is a miracle in more ways than one: three virtuoso instrumentalists play here as a compact unit that condenses all kinds of influences from prog and indie rock to electronics to such an extent that you think you're hearing completely new music." Taz

"This subtle fusion of so much, breathes the many currents of jazz, pop and electronics in the music city of Berlin. Rarely have we heard an electric guitar trio so fresh, spacious and "acoustic"." Jazzthetik

"It is certainly not presumptuous to claim that no German band currently sounds like the Melt Trio. The aplomb with which Meyer, Meyer and Baumgärtner oscillate between clear contours and opening forms, wonderful richness of melody and sound, interesting harmonies and rhythmic finesse, sets a signpost in the European musical landscape."
