…what started out as session band in a jazz club in Graz, Austria, soon became a serious work relationship for the four musicians. They share the passion for improvisation which is vital to the band’s program and was the reason for the members to come together.
Over the past years their repertoire developed from funk and jazz standards to own compositions by Burkhard Frauenlob and Martin Reitmann. Their style combines juvenile easiness with the long-time experience of both musicians.
The band’s artistic credo lies in the power of the moment. As it is crucial for their music style, Finely Tuned focus on being guided by an instant that decides whether their music can be either harmonious or ought to be even jagged…
After years of composing, playing and recording, Finely Tuned is about to release their debut album “Episodes” in spring 2020 with ATS Records. The two composers let their creative minds run free and wrote ten songs that are groovy, melodious, but also fragile and expressive. If you want to label the music, it is best described as a fusion of funk, jazz and some Latin-American vibes.
The four band members from Austria have developed into a well-attuned and harmonious band over the past years thanks to their concerts.
Finely Tuned is full of energy playing as if there was no tomorrow.
