“efzeg" is one of the most important electro-acoustic improvisation ensembles from Vienna.

Many facets blending in a unique sound: if one had to give the recipe for the success of this Vienna band, one would probably have to point to the great variety of the musical perspectives which converge in “efzeg"; and which, according to founder member Boris Hauf, are a major asset. “What is important are the different backgrounds the five of us contribute from different musical fields. It was this which finally made me decide to start this experiment. But it could have turned into a complete flop as well."

That it did not is due to the flexibility of the five musicians, whose sound worlds have grown together within a very short time to become this special “efzeg" sound. - Reinhard Kager

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
