The Band

Tuesday Microgrooves is an Austrian Crossoverjazz formation that pushes musical boundaries to their limits. Inspired by various sorts of musical influences, from Esbjoern Svensson Trio to Medeski, Martin and Wood, somewhere in between jazz and drum n bass, Erik Satie and Claude Debussy, funk and soul, classic and pop.

Shortly after they started performing in their first year, TM was given the honor of playing in front of Grammy Award winner Chucho Valdés. A few months later they were announced winners of the Helix Board competition out of 800 contestants and recorded their first studio LP “Summer Rain Spring Kisses“ at the renowned Studios 301 in Cologne, Germany.

While working on their second release “All The Things“ (EP) the band gained a lot of inspiration out of different collaborations on stage. From string ensembles to orchestras, from solo guitar to the award winning flutist Tali Rubinstein.

After releasing their third record “Saying I Love You in a Postrock Way“, the band headlined the Taichung Jazzfestival 2016 and earned a standing ovation from 10.000 people. With cellist Sigrid Narowetz as a new crew member, Tuesday Microgrooves completed their fourth trip to Asia in October 2017.

After a breathtaking collaboration with Conchita Wurst the band released their fourth LP in early 2020. “Bigger Than Us“ was leading the band into unknown waters again and turned out to be their most sophisticated album so far. Another journey into the world of pop music featuring the award winning singer-songwriter Lemo and the video release of “The New Machine“ ushered in a new era.

In 2022 the band released the first chapter of another ambitious project: the „Raw Book of Music“ featuring their new pianist Thaïs Bauer. Listeners can expect more of romantical and classical influences compared to previous albums.

While working on the „Raw Book of Music, Pt.2“ another wonderful collaboration emerged with one of Austrias finest female voices, Monika Ballwein. For the first time in Microgrooves’ history they took on a Christmas classic, namely „It came upon a midnight clear“ (Release: December 8).
