Mario Rom: trumpet | Werner Zangerle: saxophone | Philipp Jagschitz: piano | Walter Singer: double bass | Niki Dolp: drums | When a band says that it wants to make music, “which inspires you to not let the “bad guys” win,” it almost has to be an Austrian one. This special humour combined with an irrepressible joy in playing is what defines Memplex, one of the most powerful, surprising, and versatile quintets of the music scene. Something which is hardly surprising considering that all five band members contribute their own pieces. Each one has something to say as they have all made impressive careers for themselves since the founding of Memplex twelve years ago: certainly the trumpeter Mario Rom as well as the tenor saxophonist Werner Zangerle, bassist Walter Singer, pianist Philipp Jagschitz and drummer Niki Dolp. After an extended break they are now presenting a new album and celebrating the moment live.
