Malnoia redefines the concept of the traditional jazz piano trio. In replacing double bass and drums with bass clarinet and viola, the project pushes the limits of what is possible with three instruments. This unusual combination allows for exciting compositions and playful improvisations, sweeping the listener up in a moving musical experience that has been described as "hallucinogenic chamber music."
Dutch pianist Jorn Swart, who lives in Brooklyn, New York, drew inspiration for this project from classical composers like Maurice Ravel, Bela Bartok and Paul Hindemith. He combines these influences with elements of jazz, creating an atypical sound that can be both lyrical and nostalgic, and abstract and unpredictable. His melancholic themes turn suddenly into unruly improvisations or sparkling romanticism.
