Alto sax/accordion/bass is definitely not the most common trio setting. But we are in Austria, where the jazz scene has strong links with local folk tradition. Nagl's alto has a rather raw tone that goes along with great fluency. Lechner's accordion has a sound and phrasing that make it a totally individual voice, both as a harmonic instrument and as a soloist. And Jones, the American in the lot, has a bass sound that fits perfectly in this homage to Charles Mingus.
