'a band that you want to hear more of ... and you will' (jazzthing) the attempt of combining keyboards and rock-beats with more acoustic modern jazz, together with the unusual frontline of saxophone and trombone, embellished by additional instruments like accordion, glockenspiel and clarinet, results in a very unique group sound. Inspired by 1960s jazz as well as classical music, the band incorporates very thoroughly worked-out compositions, at the same time leaving space for the soloistic freedom of the individual musicians: this is exciting music from the 21st century. 'The Markus Steinhauser Quintet is moving in it's own realm with it's colourful and eccentric Edgar Wallace-Jazz, ressembling French film music in it's melancholic conception' (Henry Altmann) Markus Steinhauser: saxophone, clarinet Sebastian Hoffmann: trombone Martin Hornung: acoustic and electric keyboards, accordion Oliver Karstens: acoustic and electric bass Wolf Reichert: drums, percussion, glockenspiel.
