SHAKE STEW is Austria‘s jazz band of the hour. After playing more than 25 gigs during the first months since premiering at Jazzfestival Saalfelden 2016 and selling out their debut record „The Golden Fang“ within half a year, the unique septet is conquering the music world with a hypnotic mixture of afrobeat and jazz grooves shaken up by the intense and mysterious soundscapes created with a combination of  3 horns, two drummers and two bass players! Shake Stew released their highly anticipated new album „Rise And Rise Again“ in early 2018 (with Shabaka Hutchings as a guest on 2 tracks) and kicked off an international touring marathon that includes shows from Montreal Jazz Festival to Jazzfestival Frankfurt and will continue carrying this hard-working groove-machine all around the globe in the next months. Everywhere they went so far, the press has been more than enthusiastic, often trying to create new terms and genre-labels to put their life experiences into words. So one thing’s for sure: At some point SHAKE STEW will let loose. And if that happens you’d better be around.
