A new star on the jazz horizon: Triorität are currently playing their way into the first league of new German jazz bands. Their debut album ‘ALG0’, released in 2020, was enthusiastically received, especially in England. Everyone, including Gilles Peterson and many of his Worldwide FM colleagues as well as BBC 6, has been full of praise. Some already consider the trio from Darmstadt to be Germany’s answer to Yussef Kamaal and the explosive sound of UK jazz.
Triorität play dancefloor jazz in the truest sense: uplifting drum beats, repetitive Rhodes riffs drilling deep into the subconscious, and at times almost techno-like energies ensure this band is an unforgettable live experience. The three musicians draw inspiration for their ‘Organic Dance Music’ from 70s fusion jazz and disco as well as from modern house and hip-hop. The results are danceable pieces and atmospheric, refined jams. Triorität have already been awarded the Darmstadt Music Prize for their new, modern jazz sound.
