The Pablo Held Trio is one of the most lively and significant formations on the contemporary European jazz scene. In their concerts they transcend the boundaries between composition and improvisation by relinquishing the idea of a set list and premeditated arrangements. The risk of radical spontaneity enthuses them for some years now and it inspired an aesthetic model that is exceptional amongst contemporary musicians. The cohesion of the Pablo Held Trio is based on friendship and on the creative desire to constantly enter unknown territories. The artistic impact and the autonomy of the three outstanding musicians are attracting a growing circle of congenial musicians from Europe and America who often join the trio. The collaboration with the Munich based label Pirouet Records is of utmost importance for the group's evolvement and is documented in six CDs so far.
