Træben has everything that defines jazz. Their music is energetic and playful, groovy, spacious, dynamic and transparent. The songs leave an impression of freedom within the performance that has no boundaries and can leap in any direction at any time.
The foundation of the music consists of melodic compositions which in performance unfolds into colorful worlds. The band explores the worlds, molding them in their interplay and expanding them seeking new borders and possibilities within them. In this way each song becomes a story with a beginning and an end from first to last note. Solo's and improvisations are essential parts of this and form the building blocks that unfolds the plot. It becomes like a movie where each band member has a role in the story.
Træben shows that there is more to a band than a few individuals on a stage and everyone just "doing their own thing". The chemistry and interplay within the band makes the band greater than the sum of its parts. This is the source of the fresh energy and freedom that fuels a sense of purpose in the music. This is the essence of jazz.
