Event Details


This trio – Paul Grabowsky (piano), Mirko Guerrini (tenor saxophone), Niko Schauble (drums) – was born casually to perform at the Bernie McGann Benefit concert in late 2013. It was immediately clear that a special connection happened when these three musicians started to play together. Torrio! plays all original music composed by all three musicians. The main characteristic of this band is the amazing interplay and passion that they reach during performance. Niko Schauble is one of the most creative drummers in Australia, and has a long association with Paul Grabowsky dating back over three decades. Paul has regarded the trio format as a favourite for more than thirty years (his first trio album was recorded in 1985 and there have been quite a few since). Since moving to Melbourne, expatriate Italian saxophonist Guerrini has impressed with the depth and authority of his playing in a broad range of genres. A highly successful tour of Japan, which included performances at the Tokyo and Iwate Jazz Festivals, resulted in an invitation to perform at the Red Sea Festival in Eilat in 2017. A tour of Europe is planned for the same year.

“The imaginative work by Guerrini, Grabowsky and Schauble throughout the concert would have been a joy to behold” (Ausjazz.net)
