about us

Austrian Jazz Ensemble with influences from all over the world has been founded in June 2018.

 

All the songs that we wanna play have one main thing in common:

They were written during holiday or any band tournee telling a story of a special and intimate moment or Impressions of different landscapes as for example some hidden bay or steep clipp in the South of Great Britain, exotic gardens in Spain and Italy, monumental beauty in Paris, Florence, Prague, Berlin, Lisboa, Dubrovnik or even New York City, etc.

 

A cool and freshy mixture of Modern Swing, Second Line, Bossa Nova, Afro Cuban, Soft Funk, Jazzwaltz and Ballad played by four talented, most ambitious and professional musicians of Vienna Jazz Scene.

TOUR RETOUR hat sich im September 2018 gegründet und spielt vorwiegend Eigenkompositionen im Genre Modern Swing, ECM, Latin Jazz und Second Line. Der rote Faden des Programms ist das Verreisen. Jeder einzelne Song fand seinen Ursprung in der Inspiration fremder Kulturen und Länder, Landschaften und pulsierender Großstädte wie Berlin, Paris, London, Barcelona oder New York City, ist auf Tourneen oder Urlauben entstanden und nimmt Sie mit auf eine spannende Weltreise mit vielen rhythmischen Facetten und unterschiedlichen Klangteppichen.      Pressetext Lenny G., Falter
