Andreas has been devoting most of his musical life to the Hammond organ and has over the years developed a style that is quite unique. Playing in a trio this, without any other chord instrument, is a challenge for an organ player, and Trinity does showcase most of Andreas’ skills. Most noticable is the extraordinary bass playing (to a great extent solely with the left foot), and on top of that he really knows how to create the sounds on the Hammond B3.
His playing is always very expressive and “in the moment”, and few who have seen him in action leave the concert untouched. Over the years he has built a reputation of being an organ player with outstanding technique, great swing and a complete devotion to the music.
Other than Trinity he plays in a few other bands, mostly trios in different styles, spanning jazz, gospel, funk and fusion. More info about that at his personal website.
