Trio Exclusiv International Standards
- Words: Rachel Shimp
- Label: Klein
This Viennese combo-drummer Mex Wolfsteiner, trumpeter Richie Klammer, and guitarist Franz Reisecker (with multi-instrumentalist Martin Zrost) invokes nostalgia with accomplished disco-jazz on International Standards, using guest vocalists to further invigorate grooves that are anything but dusty. Their clean, funky production segues seamlessly from aperitifs in the hotel lobby (where Austrian Louie Austen channels Sinatra over the car-chase frenetics of "Honalee") to the handclap-filled dancefloor of G. Rizo‘s "A Time to Feel" to a nightcap in the leisure suite with Terry Callier, soulful and robust as ever on "Slo-Mo" and its dub redux. International Standards is exclusive swank that the masses should hear.
