Those attempting to describe Mario Rom’s Interzone seem to be looking constantly for superlatives. After a concert at the famed Rochester Jazz Festival in New York, the festival’s main critic called them - one of the most entertaining and exciting acts on the festival. Such a reaction from the Ameri¬can press is anything but self-evident for an Austrian band with a mean age of less than 30 years old, but the trio consisting of Mario Rom, Lukas Kranzelbinder, and Herbert Pirker has undeniably received a great deal of attention from critics and media over the world in a very short time. The group, with its unusual instrumentation (trumpet, bass and drums), has proved able to spin virtuosity and humor into entertaining fullnesse by giving impression of being four, five, or more musicians. To make one thing clear: Interzone plays jazz. No¬netheless, their motto is “everything is permitted” and they’ve lived it in Europe, Mexico, China, Israel, South Africa and the USA in the past two years. Media describes Interzone as an “absolute discovery” and “surprising playfulness almost impossible to top”. Their flawless interaction breathes a vitality that leaves the audience clamoring for encores until their repertoire is exhausted. In June 2017 Interzone released the third album „Truth Is Simple To Consume“ taking the already impressive musical journey to next level.
