‘The GUST - Jazz & Beats’ is a project that jazz violin player Michael Gustorff started in 2011, together with Clemens Horn, keyboards and Jaap Berends, bass & beats.

This Dutch-German trio uses the different talents of its members to the optimum.
Jazz improvisation, modern keyboard sounds and up-to-date beats melt together very naturally. Original compositions get twisted without losing their song appeal.

The musical outcome is fresh and surprising, beautiful and funky at the same time.

Comments:

A jazz trio with computer beats… this is not what I’m particularly fond of. But let’s make this clear: the music of ‘The GUST’ is fantastic!

Henk Lasschuit, photographer, Arnhem

We enormously enjoyed your set of boundary-defying music, the infectious joy you all had on stage and your always-exhilarating presentation. Concerning the quality of the music, the concert of  ‘The GUST’ was one of the highlights of this year’s program.

Ilse Kievelitz, Bochumer Kulturrat

Dear Michael, I’m happy that I finally made it to one of your concerts. It was real fun, listening to your music. Actually I thought that your music needs a certain ‘volume’, but as we heard yesterday, it’s not true...the atmosphere was there from the very first moment.

Zuzana Leharova, jazz violin player

Hallo Michael, I’m deeply impressed. I really enjoyed listening to your band. Especially the sound was beautiful. And I was fascinated by the practiced ease you played all this heavy stuff with.

Judith Döhn, jazz violin player

From the Press:

When he plays the violin, everybody present gets drawn into the rhythm of the master .... by including jazz and other forms of improvised music with the violin, Gustorff is broadening the horizon for the classical instrument and taking it to a whole new level.

The New Sunday Express

Michael Gustorff belts out the melodies with practiced ease, his talent unmistakable ....

Deccan Herald

….a sterling performance….gave the audience an object lesson in what jazz is all about.

The obvious technical facility remained subservient to the demands of musicality.

Michael Gustorff proved that he commands his instrument, but with subtlety. Bowing effects transformed the notes into clear mountain streams .... with a musical sensitivity on the one hand and a passionate character on the other.
