New Release by the Hammer Klavier Trio "Rocket in the Pocket"
(Published: September 25, 2012)

The Hammer Klavier Trio (HKT) is one of Germany's premiere jazz piano trios. In fact they are the only jazz act from Germany that ever has been nominated for an award by the American Jazz Journalists Association (JJA) - "Best Video of the Year" in 2010. Having played a lot in Germany and Europe this nomination meant a lot to them and they put in all efforts to do a 1-week tour in New York City, USA in June 2011. The HKT played the JJA Awards Gala, Small's Jazz Club, Miles Café, the Garage, Puppet's in Brooklyn and the German General Consulate. Rocket in the Pocket features the music of their award nominated (live) video in studio quality.

The liner notes were written by Howard Mandel, president of the Jazz Journalists Association: "The Hammer Klavier Trio is jazz as it lives and breathes today. Three bright musicians use acoustic and electric instruments in a fun and unfussy concoction of classical jazz and contemporary rhythms that feels right for this moment."

Especially for the new CD "Exaktfilm" filmed a new video which is presented on the homepage of the Hammer Klavier Trio http://www.hammerklaviertrio.com
