Vast expanses, endless horizons, a view so overwhelming it leaves one breathless. Is it freedom? Or is it loneliness? These are just some of the thoughts on which Mario Castelberg, guitarist and composer, contemplated upon whilst hiking through the highlands of Norway. The inspiration for his compositions comes from the many adventures he has experienced over the years. Together with Joel Banz (b) and Janic Haller (dr), Castelberg sets his narrative to his own version of modern jazz under the name „Lyft Trio".  Lyft Trio teamed up with saxophonist John Voirol to bring their second album “Weit” to life. Voirol’s expressive, experienced and radical style provided musical reinforcement, whilst adding a spontaneity and freshness which stands in opposition to the band’s traditional lyrical approach.
The album sustains a balance between dissonance and consonance, clear melodies and spherical noises, simplicity and complexity. In it, you will find the freedom of Jazz, the atmosphere of the Americana and the song-conducive catchiness of pop.
