“Quite dark and Nordic in feel, Majamisty's music set the hairs on the back of your neck tingling…” - Tim Dickenson (Jazzontour blog)

About Me

„Airy, graceful, intriguing music…” - Thomas Conrad (“Jazz Times”)

“Quite dark and Nordic in feel, their music set the hairs on the back of your neck tingling…” - Tim Dickeson (Jazzontour blog)

Majamisty TriO explores the space beetween jazz and classical music, expanding the possibilities of traditional piano oriented trio with additional voice, used as an instrument equal to others. Their lyrical music style has an origin in autor’s long experience in classical music and affinity towards jazz, finding the original way of painting subtle moods and emotions. In 2011, Majamisty Trio released their debut MISTYLAND with SKC, Novi Sad, and re-released it in 2012 on Maple Grove Music Production. Album consists of 11 compositions by Maja Alvanović, and cover of Errol Garner’s „Misty“. and it was published by SKC Novi Sad in August 2011.

In 2014, the second album LOVE with 10 tracks, all original, was released on Cosmic Sounds/London This album includes more guests, Gisle Torvik, guitar (Norway), Damir Bacikin, trumpet (Berlin), Bunford Gabor, sax (Serbia), Uros Secerov, percussions (Serbia) and Aleksandra Drobac, vocal (Serbia).

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!
