You can get bored when you always do the same thing. So the Pablo Held Trio, which has existed for 13 years, certainly doesn’t know the word boredom. One of pianist Pablo Held, bassist Robert Landfermann and drummer Jonas Burgwinkel’s characteristics is that they love to surprise themselves. They have produced ten albums and performed live concerts, with no set lists. They do have a basic structure of compositions, but how the sound building is created is left to the present moment. Anyone who is interested in Pablo Held’s relationship to music, jazz and his own aesthetic experiences should watch his freely accessible interview series online. In “Pablo Held Investigates” he speaks about musicians he admires such as Wayne Shorter, John Scofield and Dave Longstreth and he also talks about himself, for example about when he experienced pianist Kevin Hays live. Pablo was nine years old at the time and has been a fan of his ever since. Meanwhile the 33-year old hero himself has many fans, quite a few of which live in the metropolitan region, because the trio has already enraptured audiences at Enjoy Jazz several times.
