Highly in demand as a sideman, ‘It simply doesn’t get any better than this’ John Kelman.
Vein are a great trio with drummer Florian Arbenz at the helm. Arguably one of the best drummers in Europe and winner of a European Culture Award, Florian is joined by his brother Michael Arbenz on piano, for whom too international stardom beckons. The trio is complete with bassist Thomas Lähns who equally deserves the prodigy status.
“The most striking thing about the trio of the Swiss Arbenz brothers, Florian on drums and Michael on piano, with Thomas Lähns on bass, is the wit and humour they bring to their music“… Peter Bacon The Jazzbreakfast, April 2014.
