1 - UnnamedStomps, Pieces and Variations (Ben Winkelman Trio)

The Ben Winkelman Trio, featuring Ben Winkelman (piano), Rodrigo Aravena (bass) and Danny Fischer (drums) have come together for their debut Jazzhead release, Stomps Pieces and Variations.

The 14 tracks represent a diverse cross section of Ben's writing with influences ranging from Herbie Hancock to Jelly Roll Morton to Brazilian music and Bartok. Making use of hits, stabs and lines that are broken up across the three instruments, they have created an element of bop (or post-bop) to their music.

Press quotes about “Stomps, Pieces and Variations” (2005):

**** "Splendid. Here we come a little closer to the divine." The Age EG, 2005

“Ben Winkelman is the genuine article, a determined crossbreeder of styles whose music is inventive and often surprising.” Cadence (USA), 2006
