This trio of  Contrabass Clarinet, Piano/Harmonica, and Accordion grew out of Michael Riessler’s “Momentum Mobile” for SWF in Baden Baden, Germany in the mid 1990’s.  The trio performs music composed by all three band members, plus free improvisations- individual, duo, and trio. Their CD Silver and Black was recorded for the German record label Enja.  Find out more here- what does that mean?. and add a space HERE. They tour extensively throughout Europe, and have appeared often on German radio.
